Solution to Question #15

Text Solution for Question #15 is below
If the firm is following installment sales method, we need to find out the proportion of revenue each year.

First Approach
For Second year: cash received = \$15 million, Total revenue = \$50 million
Revenue is equal to the cash received
Proportion of revenue received in the second year = 15/50 = 30%
So, the firm should recognize, 30% of the total cost in the 2nd year,
=> Cost = 30% *Total cost = 30% * \$30 million = \$9 million
=> Profit = \$15 million - \$9 million = \$6 million

Second approach
Total profit = Sales - Cost = \$50 - \$30 = \$20 million
=> profit margin = 20/50 = 40%
Apply, this profit margin to the revenue of each year.
Since the cash received is equal to the revenue.
For Second year: cash received = \$15 million
=> Profit = profit margin * revenue = 40% * \$15 million = \$6 million

Thanks

Total stock = ((10000+1000)*12 + (4000+400)*9 + (-1000)*4) /12
=((11000*12 ) + (4400*9) -(1000*4))/12
= ((132000) + (39600)-(4000))/12= 13967 (but no option according to my solution) , Is anything i am missing here, Ratan sir?

Thanks a lot for pointing.
The option B was incorrectly mentioned as 13,367 it should have been 13,967. I have corrected it now.

Thanks
