PE 2-14 Expanded Accounting Equation
Use the expanded equation to compute the missing quantity.

Assets Liabilities Capital Stock Retained Earnings
Case A $23,000 $11,000 A $ 4,500
Case B 17,500 B $ 4,500 3,600
Case C C 14,000 11,000 27,000
Case D 45,000 29,000 18,000 D

Assets = Liabilities + Capital Stock + Retained Earnings

Case A A = 23,000 - 11,000 - 4,500 = 7,500
Case B B = 17,500 - 4,500 - 3,600 = 9,400
Case C C = 14,000 + 11,000 + 27,000 = 52,000
Case D D = 45,000 - 29,000 - 18,000 = 2,000
