Yamba Home Products is just beginning its fourth quarter, in which peak sales occur. The company has requested a $12,000, 90-day loan from its bank to help meet cash requirements during the quarter.

2. Past experience shows that 25 percent of a month's sales are collected in the month of sale, 70 percent in the month following sale, and 4 percent in the second month following sale. Budgeted sales and expenses for the fourth quarter follow:
