Customers are allowed a 2 percent discount if payment is made within 10 days after the billing date. Receivables are recorded in the accounts at their gross amounts (not net of discounts).

The billings are collected as follows: 65 percent within the discount period, 20 percent by the end of the month, and 12 percent by the end of the following month. Three percent is uncollectible.

Purchase data are as follows.

Of all purchases of merchandise and selling, general, and administrative expenses, 60 percent is paid in the month purchased and the remainder in the following month.
