Effect of transactions on assets, liabilities and net income

Can you assist with this project question?

For each of the following transactions or adjustments, indicate the effect of the transaction or adjustment on assets, liabilities, and net income by entering for each account affected the account name and amount and indicating whether it is an addition (+) or a subtraction (-). Transaction a has been done as an illustration. Net income is not affected by every transaction. In some cases, only one column may be affected because all of the specific accounts affected by the transaction are included in that category.

a. Recorded $200 of depreciation expense.

b. Sold land that had originally cost $8,000 for $13,000 in cash.

e. Recorded a $6,500 payment for the cost of developing and registering a trademark.

f. Recognized periodic amortization for the trademark (in part e) using a 48-year useful life.

g. Sold used production equipment for $18,000 in cash. The equipment originally cost $50,000, and the accumulated depreciation account has an unadjusted balance of $23,300.
