    Eagle Industries feels that a lockbox system can shorten its accounts receivable collection period by 3 days. Credit sales are $3,240,000 per year, billed on a continuous basis. The firm has other equally risky investments with a return of 15%. The cost of the lockbox system is $9,000 per year. (Note: Assume a 365-day year.)

    a. What amount of cash will be made available for other uses under the lockbox system?
