Well, the "\$7000 cash" received should be a big hint to answer the cash flow part of the question. The \$4000 is not considered an outgoing cash flow yet because it is still on account (a check for the merchandise has not been cut yet). The formula for gross margin should be in your text, but it is very easy to determine it since you don't have to worry about operating expenses.

So if Gross Margin = Revenue - Cost 7000-4000=3000 The answer would be b) since the 7000 is a cash inflow.

The only remaining unanswered questions is, is this a 2 point or 3 point problem?

So if Gross Margin = Revenue - Cost 7000-4000000 The answer would be b) since the 7000 is a cash inflow.
