    July August September Total
    Budgeted sales (all on account) $567,000 $789,000 $461,000 $1,817,000

    From past experience, the company has learned that 25% of a month's sales are collected in the month of sale, another 70% are collected in the month following sale, and the remaining 5% are collected in the second month following sale.
