To determine

To calculate: The revenue, operating expense and income tax of Advance Auto Parts if gross margin is $3,252, cost of goods sold is $3,242, net income (loss) is $392 and income before taxes is $626.

Explanation

Given Information:

It is given that Advance Auto Part’s gross margin is $3,252, cost of goods sold is $3,242, net income (loss) is $392 and income before taxes is $626.

Formula used:

The gross margin is computed by subtracting cost of goods sold from total revenue,

Gross margin=Total revenueCost of goods sold

The equation can be reformed to compute the total revenue,

Total revenue=Cost of goods sold+Gross margin

The income before taxes is computed by subtracting total operating expense from gross margin,

Income before taxes=Gross marginTotal operating expense

The equation can be reformed to compute the operating expense,

Total operating expense=Gross marginIncome before taxes

The net income (loss) is computed by subtracting income tax from income before taxes,

Net income(loss)=Income before taxesIncome tax

This equation can be reformed to compute income tax,

Income tax=Income before taxesNet income(loss)

Calculation:

Consider Advance Auto Part’s gross margin is $3,252, cost of goods sold is $3,242, net income (loss) is $392 and income before taxes is $626
