SE2: Using the following data, prepare an income statement for Martin's Hardware for the month ended February 28:

Cost of goods sold $30,000
General and administrative expenses 8,000
Net sales 50,000
Selling expenses 7,000

Martin's Hardware
Income Statement
For the Month Ending February 28

Net sales $50,000
Less: Cost of goods sold 30,000
Gross Profit $20,000
Less: Selling expenses $7,000
General and administrative expenses $8,000
Total Expenses $15,000
Net Income $5,000

We need to find the gross profit by deducting cost of goods sold from the net sales. Then, we will deduct selling expenses and general and administrative expenses in order to get the net income.

SE3: A dealer buys tooling machines from a manufacturer and resells them to its customers.

a. The manufacturer sets a list or catalogue price of $6,000 for a machine. The manufacturer offers its dealers a 40 percent trade discount.
b. Freight charges are FOB shipping point. The cost of shipping a machine is $350.
c. The manufacturer offers a sales discount of 2/10, n/30. The sales discount does not apply to shipping costs.
What is the net cost of the tooling machine to the dealer, assuming it is paid for within ten days of purchase?

First, we need to find the cost after the trade discount. Then, we will calculate the sales discount from that amount before deducting it from the cost-after trade discount. Then, we will add the cost of shipping later. Sales discount is not applicable to cost of shipping.

Catalogue

Deduct trade discount (6,000 x 40%) 2,400
Cost after trade discount 3,600
Deduct sales discount 2/10 n/30
(3,600 x 2%) 72
Cost after sales discount 3,528
Add: FOB cost of shipping 350
Net cost 3,878
