For the following four cases, use the accounting equation to compute the missing quantity.
Assets Liabilities Owners' Equity
Case A $10,000 $ 4,000 A
Case B 8,000 B $3,500
Case C C 5,500 7,000
Case D 13,000 15,000 D

Assets = Liabilities + Owners' Equity

Case A 10,000 = 4,000 + A
A = 6,000

Case B 8,000 = B + 3,500
B = 4,500

Case C C = 5,500 + 7,000
C = 12,500

Case D 13,000 = 15,000 + D
D = -2,000

Using the following information, compute total current assets.
Land $ 9,000
Machinery 1,100
Accounts payable 1,750
Cash 400
Buildings 10,000
Accounts receivable 950
Retained earnings 1,000
Inventory 4,000

Total current assets = Cash + Accounts Receivable + Inventory
= 400 + 950 + 4,000 = 5,350

For the following four cases, compute (1) the book value of equity
