Accounts receivable changes with bad debts. A firm is evaluating an accounts        receivable change that would increase bad debts from 2% to 4% of sales. Sales                               are currently 50,000 units, the selling price is \$20 per unit, and the variable cost                              per unit is \$15. As a result of the proposed change, sales are forecast to increase                                    to 60,000 units.

a. What are bad debts in dollars currently and under the proposed change?

b. Calculate the cost of the marginal bad debts to the firm.
