Please find in attachment the work I need help on. Please do not answer the TRUE or FALSE question.
Kwan Lee began a cleaning service on October 1, 20xx and engaged in the following transactions during his first month of operations. Use the attached forms to do the following:

1. Journalize the entries in the General Journal on pages 3 and 4 using requirements (A) and (B) as follows:
(A) Use explanations in each journal entry.
(B) Before journalizing the entries into the General Journal, go to the General Ledger on pages 5 and 6
and read the names of the accounts. DO IT NOW. Use only those precise account names in your
journal entries.

2. Post the General Journal entries into the General Ledger accounts on pages 5 and 6 using posting references in both the General Journal and in the General Ledger.

3. Prepare the Trial Balance of the ledger accounts in the Trial Balance form on page 2. Although the trial
balance form is on page 2, it must be done last, after journalizing, posting, and calculating account
balances.
