It takes ten skeins of yarn to make one sweater. Each skein costs $1.30. Past experience shows you need to have enough sweaters on-hand to fill the next month and one half of sales (approximately forty-five days). Also, you need enough yarn to manufacture the next month’s production.

You will have 12,000 sweaters in finished inventory and 80,000 skeins of yarn in raw materials inventory as of December 31, 2015. You purchased $90,000 of yarn in December that must be paid for in January. The Company incurred $7,500 of overhead cost during December 2015, and $13,500 of selling expenses in the last half of December. These also must be paid in January. The company policy is to pay prior month's charges on account on the tenth day of the following month unless otherwise designated.
