Step 1

Step1: Calculating the value of account payable for the year 2017. We have,

Free Cash Flow = Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) + Depreciation expenses – Capital Expenditures – Changes in Working Capital

Free Cash Flow = Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) + Depreciation expenses – Changes in gross Fixed Assets – (Changes in current assets – Changes in current liabilities)

Free Cash Flow = Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) + Depreciation expenses – Changes in gross Fixed Assets – Changes in current assets + Changes in accrued wages and taxes + Changes in account payable +Changes in note payable

Here,

EBIT = $ 98 million

Depreciation expenses = $ 17 million

Changes in gross fixed assets = $365 million – $ 325 million = $ 40 million

Changes in Current Assets = $ 244 million - $ 198 million = $ 46 million

Changes in Accrued wages and taxes = $ 19 million - $ 17 million = $ 2 million

Changes in Account payable =?

Changes in Note payable = $ 33 million - $ 30 million = $ 3 million

By substituting these value in the above formula. We get;

$ 45 million = $ 98 million + $ 17 million - $ 40 million – $ 46 million + $ 2 million + $ 3 million + Changes in account payable

$ 45 million = $ 34 million + Changes in account payable

Changes in account payable = $ 45 million - $ 34 million

Changes in account payable = $ 11 million

(Account payable - $ 42 million) = $ 11 million

Account payable = $ 42 million + $ 11 million

Account payable = $ 53 million

Therefore, the account payable on the balance sheet for the year 2017 shall be $ 53 million

Step 2

Step2: Calculating the value of total current liabilities for the year 2017. We have,
