The Quilt Shop deposits all receipts in the bank each evening and makes all payments by check. On July 31, its ledger balance of cash is $2,830.15. The bank statement balance of cash as of July 31 is $3,215.20. Use the following information to reconcile the bank statement:

  3. c. A deposit of $446.80 was placed in the night depository on July 31 and did not appear on the bank statement.
