A balance sheet drawn up at this time shows the following account balances:

wilson,Capital 20%..........28,000
Clarke, Capital 20%...........61,000

Total Assets................$225,000 Total Liabilities and Capital $225,000

The Following transactions occur in liquidating this business:
~Distributed safe captial balances immediately to the partners. Liquidation expenses of $9000
