Thanks for your question.


A) $25,000-$55,000 = -$30,000 total cash flow for 2008.

Cash flow from investing= -$250,000

Cash flow from financing= $170,000

Cash flow from operating = x

-250,000 + 170,000 + x = -30,000

80,000 + x = -30,000

x= -30,000 - 80,000

x= -$110,000 = cash flow from operating activities


B) cash flow from operating activities = -$110,000

less depreciation -10,000

plus increase in receivables $100,000

plus increase in accruals $25,000

net income = $5,000


Hope this helps,

Best regards
