Historically, Ragman Company has had no significant bad debt experience with its customers. Cash sales have accounted for 20 percent of total sales, and payments for credit sales have been received as follows:
40 percent of credit sales in the month of the sale
35 percent of credit sales in the first subsequent month
20 percent of credit sales in the second subsequent month
5 percent of credit sales in the third subsequent month
The forecast for both cash and credit sales is as follows.
January ........ $185,000
February ........ 182,000
March ........ 192,000
April ........ 196,000
May ........ 210,000
