I am not sure if you already figured this out - but thought I would reply just in case. Your question is basing total sales off of anticipated budgeted sales.

So for the month of September:

Total Sales = \$230,741
Sales made with cash = \$230,741 * 20% = \$46,148.20
Sales in A/R = \$230,741 * 80% = \$184,592.80
Of the total sales in A/R for September 70% of expected to be collected in the same month = \$184,592.80 * 70% = \$129,214.96

Your questions asks what the cash collection in September for A/R would be. They are equal to \$129,214.96.
