We are given the following infomation:

Office equip 13800

Inventory 5850

Bank debit balance 190

payables 5370

sales 63900 gross sales margin of 25%

purchases 46795

I am able to work out the following

(a)

Assets:19650

Liabilities: 5560

Capital: 14090

(b)

Cogs 47925

(c)

Closing inventory 4720

All of the above is fine, I understand all that.

Question e asks what is the value of the sales ledger and the answer is 6490. I cannot figure out how to get to that figure.

Can anyone help?

320AAT StudentThe total on the sales ledger will be the Sales closing balance. Since we know that Sales for the year are 63900 it's not going to be that. Even allowing Customers a month to pay there will still be Receipts coming in to reduce this figure. Its also unlikely to be greater than Sales for the year, so the most likely answer is 6490
