##### SOLVED NUMERICAL PROBLEMS
1. Find out the average size of receivables if the goods are sold for Rs 10,00,000 on a net 60 credit term with an assumption that 20% of the customers do not pay within the prescribed time. Will there be any change in the average size if the terms of credit change to 2/10 net 60 with an assumption that 60% of the customers avail the discount?

Solution
