23. Winslow Enterprises has total assets of $11,700, net working capital of $1,400, owner's equity of $5,000 and long-term debt of $3,500. What is the value of the current assets?

Total Assets = Total liabilities + Total Equity
Total liabilities = Total Assets - Total Equity
= 11,700-5,000=6,700
Total liabilities = Current Liabilities + Long term liabilities
Current Liabilities = 6,700-3,500 = 3,200
Net working capital = Current Assets - Current Liabilities
Current Assets = Net working capital + current liabilities
= 1,400+3,200
= 4,600

24. Gladstone, Inc. has net working capital of $4,300, long-term debt of $8,200, total debt of $10,100, and owners' equity of $12,000. What is the value of Gladstone's net fixed assets?

Total Assets = Total liabilities + Total Equity
= 10,100 + 12,000
= 22,100
Current liabilities = 10,100-8,200 = 1,900 (total debt - long term debt)
Net Working Capital = Current Assets - Current Liabilities
Current Assets = 4,300+1,900 = 6,200
Total assets = Current assets + Net fixed assets
Net fixed assets = 22,100-6,200 = 15,900
