projections for March, the beginning cash balance will be \$50,090; cash collections will be
\$700,000; and cash disbursements will be \$710,450. Austin Paints desires to maintain a

bank, which provides short-term borrowings in \$500 increments. All borrowings are made at
the beginning of the month, and all repayments are made at the end of the month (in \$500
increments). Accrued interest is paid at the time of repayment.
