shared equally. Therefore Day and Night would each get \$34,200 allocation.

(1,2)

To adjust allowance for doubtful accounts to 4% of receivables.
Up and Down: \$90,000 × 0.04 = \$3,600 - \$2,000 = \$1,600 credit
Back and Forth: \$140,000 × 0.04 = \$5,600 - \$6,000 = \$400 debit

To adjust inventory to FIFO valuation method 0.80 × X = \$115,000
X = \$143,750 - \$115,000 = \$28,750

To adjust the allowance for depreciation account to an accumulation of depreciation for 3 years computed by the double-declining
balance method
Desired accumulated depreciation balance: \$16,000 + \$12,800 + \$10,240*
Depreciation provided
* \$80,000 × 0.20 = \$16,000
