B. 29.

C. 35.4

**Explanation:**Convert each turnover figure into days: inventory processing = 30.4 days, receivables = 45.6 days, payables = 365/9 = 40.6 days. 30.4 + 45.6 - 40.6 = 35.4 days.

turnover #s are the denominators of the components of CCC equation: DOH=365/Inv. turn, DSO=365/receivables turn., # Days Payables=365/Payables turn. Just divide 365 by each of the #s given, add the first two, subtract the last. |
