cash flow direct vs indirect

I am getting confused at this point : Why there is a difference in only operating cash flow. Net income comprises of income from all three activities and accrual accounting is done in all 3. So there should be a difference between total income and cash flow in all 3 activities (operating,investing,financing) - right?

The difference between the two cash flow is in how it is calculated the cash flow from operating activities as they start from different different data.

you accounting-challenged people are hilarious.

:slight_smile: … Accounting is so confusing … I am so struck up on this part

me too i know one starts from net income and one from total revenue. then i kind of stutter and add in depreciation when i should subtract it or something and it all goes to pot. i did learn that MP is maximised when MC is minimal today (i think) and some other elastic junk.
