What are Matterhorn's total cash receipts for the month of March?

Cash collection:

Cash collection refers to the receipt of cash from the sales made by the company. It is given as the cash sales plus the collection from sales made in the current period plus the collection from sales made in any of the previous periods.

Answer and Explanation:

Cash receipts for March
= Cash sales of March + 30% of credit sales of March + 60% of credit sales of February + 10% of Credit sales of January
= 55,000 + 95,000 x 30% + 110,000 x 60% + 50,000 x 10%
= $154,500.00
