Monetary Unit Sampling. Casey Paul is considering the use of MUS in examining Stanley’s accounts receivable, which were recorded at $ 300,000.

b. Based on the sample size determined in (a), what is the appropriate sampling interval?
c. Briefly describe how Paul would select the sample from a computerized customer list that Stanley maintains.
d. How would each of the following changes in Paul’s sampling plan impact the sample size and sampling interval? For each change, use the original parameters noted in the problem back-ground. (Verify your answer by calculating the sample size associated with each change.)
1. A reduction in the necessary level of the risk of incorrect acceptance to 5 percent.
2. An increase in the expected misstatement to $ 12,500.
