During January 2018, the following transactions occur:

January 2 Provide services to customers for cash, $39,100.
January 6 Provide services to customers on account, $76,400.
January 15 Write off accounts receivable as uncollectible, $1,400.
January 20 Pay cash for salaries, $31,800.
January 22 Receive cash on accounts receivable, $74,000.
January 25 Pay cash on accounts payable, $5,900.
January 30 Pay cash for utilities during January, $14,100.

a. At the end of January, $5,400 of accounts receivable are past due, and the company estimates that 20% of these accounts will not be collected. Of the remaining accounts receivable, the company estimates that 5% will not be collected. The note receivable of $24,000 is considered fully collectible and therefore is not included in the estimate of uncollectible accounts.
b. Supplies at the end of January total $900.
c. Accrued interest revenue on notes receivable for January. Interest is expected to be received each December 31.
d. Unpaid salaries at the end of January are $33,900.
