Nathans Hot Dog Corp has projected the following sales for the coming year:
Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4
Sales $ 700 $ 850 $ 950 $ 1,050
Sales in the year following this one are projected to be 17 percent greater in each quarter.
Calculate payments to suppliers assuming that Nathans places orders during each quarter equal to 32 percent of projected sales for the next quarter. Assume that Nathans pays immediately. The payables period in this case is 0 days.

$272 $304 $336 $262.08
This is a sample to do my HW with. I don't understand how they got 262.08 for quarter 4.

The question was wrong, it is not greater 17% in each quarter, it is greater 17% from the FIRST quarter.
