The amount collected from customers on accounts receivable during year 3 is \$535,000.

Explanation:

Cash received from accounts receivable = Opening balance of AR + Credit Sales - Bad debts written off - Closing balance of AR.

The opening balance for year 3 account receivables was 150000. Credit Sales = 600000 Bad debts = 40000 Closing Balance = 175000

We can solve this question either by making a T account for accounts receivable or using the equation given above.

Cash = 150000 + 600000 - 40000 - 175000 = \$535000
