Question: Jane Baldwin Anderson Flooring s accounting intern has prepared the following

Jane Baldwin, Anderson Flooring's accounting intern, has prepared the following income statement for the month of June. In preparing the income statement, Jane was unsure what to do with $250,000 in corporate fixed expenses that cannot be traced to a particular division.
