Refer to the financial statements and the accompanying notes of Canadian Tire Corporation in Appendix A.
1. State the amount of the largest expense on the statement of earnings for 2012 and describe the transaction represented by the expense.
2. Assuming that all net sales are on credit, how much cash did Canadian Tire Corporation collect from customers?

If you believe that the assumption is valid, state so and support your position concisely.
4. Describe and contrast the purpose of a statement of earnings versus a statement of financial position.
