The units Optima produces combine positive features of both compact and hard disks. The company is completing its fifth year of operations and is preparing to build its master budget for the coming year (2012).

First quarter ....... 65,000
Second quarter ...... 70,000
Third quarter ....... 75,000
Fourth quarter ...... 90,000
The selling price is $ 400 per unit. All sales are credit sales. Optima collects 85 percent of all sales within the quarter in which they are realized; the other 15 percent is collected in the following quarter. There are no bad debts.
c. There is no beginning inventory of finished goods. Optima is planning the following ending finished goods inventories for each quarter:
