Question description

Help me understand this Accounting problem:

Abebe Helton owns a small restaurant in New York City. Ms. Helton provided her accountant with the following summary information regarding expectations for the month of June. The balance in accounts receivable as of May 31 is $58,000. Budgeted cash and credit sales for June are $144,000 and $580,000, respectively. Credit sales are made through Visa and MasterCard and are collected rapidly. Sixty percent of credit sales is collected in the month of sale, and the remainder is collected in the following month. Ms. Helton’s suppliers do not extend credit. Consequently, she pays suppliers on the last day of the month. Cash payments for June are expected to be $712,000. Ms. Helton has a line of credit that enables the restaurant to borrow funds on demand; however, they must be borrowed on the last day of the month. Interest is paid in cash also on the last day of the month. Ms. Helton desires to maintain a $37,000 cash balance before the interest payment. Her annual interest rate is 10 percent.
