    Entry: 1. Dr bad debts expense 5500

    Cr Allowance for uncollectible accounts 5500

    Explanation:

    1. Account receivable = $44000

    Allowance for uncollectible accounts (Dec, 31 2021) = $1100

    44000 * 15% = 6600 - 1100 = $5500 Allowance for uncollectible accounts

    2. Bad debts expense = (44000 * 15%) = 6600

    3. Uncollecible accounts = (Open) Allowance for bad debts + Current year Allowance.

    = 1100 + 6600 = $7700.

    4. 44000 - 7700 = $36300 net account receiable
