a. Suppose 2013 sales are projected to increase by 15% over 2012 sales. Use the forecasted financial statement method to forecast a balance sheet
and income statement for Dec 31 2013. The interest rate on all debt is 10% and cash earns no interest income. Assume that all additional debt
is added at the end of the year which means that you should base the forecasted interest expense on the balance of debt at the start of the year.
Use the forecasted income statement to determine the addition to retained earnings. Assume that the company was operating at full capacity in
2012 the it cannot sell off any of its fixed assets and that any required financing will be borrowed as notes payable. Assume that assets,
spontaneous liabilities, and operating costs are expected to increase by the same percentage as sales. Determine the additional funds needed.

b. What is the resulting total forecasted amount of notes payable?
