## Net Income and Cash Flows:

The net income of a firm can be ascertained by using absorption costing approach or variable costing approach. The classification of product costs and period costs varies under these methods. On the other hand, the operating cash flows can be determined by using direct method or indirect method.

The operating profit before tax is given by:

• = Gross sales - (cost of goods sold + selling expenses + depreciation expense)
• = $1.12 million - ($531,000 + $221,000 +$136,000)
• = $1.12 million -$888,000
• = $232,000 The value of profit before tax is given by: • = Operating profit before tax - (notes payable * interest rate) • =$232,000 - ($860,000 * 6%) • =$180,400

Senbet's net income is given by:

• = Profit before tax * (1 - tax rate)
• = $180,400 * (1 - 40%) • =$108,240

 Net income $108,240 Answer to b The operating cash flows is given by: • = Net income + depreciation expense • =$108,240 + $136,000 • =$244,240
