Chapter 2
2-14 Expanded Accounting Equation
For the following four cases, use the expanded accounting equation to compute the missing quantity

Assets liabilities Capital stock Retained earnings

Case A \$20,000 \$8,000 A \$3,500

Case B 16,000 B \$5,000 2,000

Case C C 11,000 14,000 32,000

Case D 46,000 30,000 20,000 D

Assets = Liabilities + Equity + Retained Earnings

Case A 20,000 = 8,000 + A + 3,500
A = 8,500

Case B 16,000 = B + 5,000 + 2,000
B = 9,000

Case C C = 11,000 + 14,000 + 32,000
C = 57,000

Case D 46,000 = 30,000 + 20,000 + D
D = -4,000
