chamad 45 days payable is bigger than 23 days receivables....it's not financing only a portion but the whole receivables!!!
malawyer First, look at the company in question, which is the supplier (ToyCo) of Bigtoy.

Second: A is wrong, because ToyCo receives the payment AFTER Bigtoy sold it further (45 days compared to 23 days).

B is wrong, because it takes BigToy 57 days (34+23) before converting the delivery into cash compared to 45 days when the bill is paid.

C is obvious wrong.

D is correct, because it finances the portion of 11 days of receivables of Bigtoy (45-34= 11 days left).
StanleyMo i guess should be 34+23-45 = net cash cycle ( positive cash cycle = finance the receivable period)
mishis 34+23-45= 12 days , this is portion of days receivables needed to be finance.
Rubbish nonono...its 11days. 45-34=11 out of the 23 receivable days, 11 of it is financed by the payables.12 days left unfinanced cuz by then u had already paid back the payables..
bvides ha.ha..ITs different companies..read carefully..Big Toys and The TOy CO.
dipu617 Yeah.. its different companies and apparently all the people in the discussion are aware about this!
shahzeb Why is A incorrect?
Toy Co gets paid in 45 days
Toys sit in inventory for 34 days and then are sold in another 23 days = (34+23 = 57)
57 > 45 .. meaning Toy Co gets cash before Big Toys is able to collect cash
