Hi and welcome to Just Answer! I'm happy to help answer your Finance questions. Feel free to ask for clarification if needed.


EBIT(1-Tax Rate)+Depreciation+Change in Net Working Capital-Capital Expenditure



Change in AR: 63,000-45,000 = 18,000

Change in Inventory: 80,000-65,000=15,000

Change in AP: 94,000-70,000=24,000
