## Solutions

##### Expert Solution

A)

Based on information provided Sylvia networth statement :

Networth = Assets - Liabilities

Total assets = Hosuing value + cash in bank + Canada Savings Bonds + Furnishings and personal assets + Auto + RRSP

=100,000+1800+8000+18000+20000+28500

=$176,300 Total Liabilities = credit card balance owing + line of credit owing + mortgage + car loan = 2800+5000+62000+18500 =88,800 Networth = 176,300 - 88,800 =$87,500

Cash Flow Statement of Sylvia

Annual Income = 50000

Payrol and tax deductions = 50000*30% = 15000

Net Income = 50000-15000

=35000

Annual expected Expense = Mortgage payments, including property taxes and interest + Groceries + Holidays + Car payments, including interest + Utilities + House and car insurance + Gas for auto + Auto maintenance + Life and disability insurance premiums + House maintenance + Household expenses + Medical and dental expenses + Entertainment and lunches + Gifts + Clothing + Miscellaneous expenses

= 5886+3600+3500+4778+3000+1600+2200+600+400+1500+600+400+5500+1400+3400+3200

Total Expenses = 41,564

Expenses are higher than income

Cash Flow = Income - Expense

=35000+400-41564

=-$6164 Sylvia has negative cash flow of$6164

B)

As Sylvia has negative cash flow and Sylvia wants to invest 10% of her net pay, that will be approx $3500. Her net income will be$31,900 (31500+400)

Total Expenses = $41,564 Cash flow Budget = 31900 - 41564 =-$9664

Her cash flow will be negative $9664 She should control her expense as this negative cash flow will lead her to take more debt in future. ## Related Solutions ##### 4.
