Jessica Rabbit and George Foreman are contemplating becoming business partners of an out-door grill company appropriately named, “Outdoor Chef Grill.”  Jessica solicited George to be her business partner to prove to her husband, Roger, that she has more to offer than singing at cocktail lounges and drinking martinis.  Jessica has been a customer of George Foreman’s grills for years, to cook low-fat foods and maintain her figure.  George accepted her proposal, as he believes that Jessica’s name and image will bring in a new demographic of shoppers.  Although Jessica is an outgoing lady, she has not managed her money and needs to obtain funding from her husband to buy into the company.  Although Roger loves Jessica, he has asked to see budgets and forecasts for the revenue and expenses of the company.  Since George’s finance department is in the process of preparing budgets for 4Q of 2016, he is having the finance department create a special monthly forecast budget for Roger as well as an annual forecast and budget.  You, being one of George’s employees, is asked to prepare the monthly budget for October2016.
