Berkner Motors is a chain of car dealerships. Sales in the fourth quarter of last year were $ 3,700,000. Suppose management projects that its current year’s quarterly sales will increase by 2% in quarter 1, by another 4% in quarter 2, by another 3% in quarter 3, and by another 5% in quarter 4. Management expects cost of goods sold to be 55% of revenues every quarter, while operating expenses should be 35% of revenues during each of the first two quarters, 25% of revenues during the third quarter, and 20% during the fourth quarter.
