b. A $760,000 note payable requires $5,700 of interest to be paid at the end of each 30 days. The interest was last paid on April 20 and the next payment is due on May 20. As of April 30, $1,900 of interest expense has accrued.
c. Total weekly salaries expense for all employees is $12,000. This amount is paid at the end of the day on Friday of each five-day workweek. April 30 falls on Tuesday of this year, which means that the employees had worked two days since the last payday. The next payday is May 3.
