1. Actual costs incurred in 2021

2. Cash collections in 2021 \$ 84,000

3. Estimated cost to complete

4. Estimated percentage

Solution:

1. Construction in process = Cost incurred + profit recognized.

=> Cost incurred = \$120,000 – 22,000 = \$98,000.

2. cash Collection in 2021 :-

=>Billings = Cash Collections + Account receivables.

=> Cash Collections = \$116,000 – 32,000 = \$84,000.

3. Estimated cost to complete :-

Let A =Actual cost incurred + Estimated cost to complete

=>(Actual cost incurred/A) × (Contract prices-A) = Profit recognized.

=>\$98,000 /A) * (\$1,800,000 – A) = \$22,000.

=>\$176,400,000,000 – \$98,000A = 22,000A

A= \$1,470,000.

Estimated cost to complete = \$1,470,000 – 98,000 = \$1,372,000.

4. Estimated Percentage :-=> Actal cost incurred ÷(Cost incurred + Estimated cost to complete).

=> \$98,000 ÷ (98,000 + \$1,470,000) = 6.25%
