    City Farm Insurance has collection centers across the country to speed up
    collections. The company also makes its disbursements from remote
    disbursement centers so checks written by City Farm take longer to clear the
    bank. Collection time has been reduced by two days and disbursement time
    increased by one day because of these policies. Excess funds are being invested
    in short-term instruments yielding 12 percent per annum.

    a. If City Farm has $5 million per day in collections and $3 million per day in
    disbursements, how many dollars has the cash management system freed up?

    b. How much can City Farm earn in dollars per year on short-term
    investments made possible by the freed-up cash?
