Samson Motors is a chain of car dealerships. Sales in the fourth quarter of last year were $ 4,200,000. Suppose its management projects that its current year’s quarterly sales will increase by 7% in quarter 1, by another 2% in quarter 2, by another 3% in quarter 3, and by another 6% in quarter 4. Management expects cost of goods sold to be 45% of revenues every quarter, while operating expenses should be 20% of revenues during each of the first two quarters, 30% of revenues during the third quarter, and 35% during the fourth quarter.
