Required: (You MUST show all work to receive full credit)

            Utilities Expense: 22,660

            Supplies Expense: 47,750

  • What was the beginning Retained Earnings amount (as of December 31st, 2012?)  Hint: You need to find net income to solve for this.
  • What is the difference between authorized, issued and outstanding shares of stock?
  • Authorized shares are the number of stock units that a publicly traded company can issue.
  • Issued shares of stock are the number of authorized shares that is sold to and held by the shareholders of a company. Issued shares include the stock that a company sells publicly in order to generate capital.
  • Outstanding shares are a company’s stock currently held by all its shareholders, including share blocks held by institutional investors and restricted shared owned by the company’s officers and insiders.
  • What principle, constraint or assumption dictates that we record inventories at the lower of cost or market?
  • What is the company’s current ratio? Show formula & answer.
  • What are the NET assets of the business? Show formula & answer.


Problem One:

  1. Separate the accounts into Income Statement, Retained Earnings and Balance Sheet accounts.  (I usually highlight mine in different colors, but you are free to use whatever method works best for you).
  2. Determine the Accumulated Depreciation for the building before solving for ending Retained Earnings.
  • Remember, your Balance Sheet “equation” is the same as the Accounting Equation.
  • To solve for beginning Retained Earnings, you first need to solve for ending Retained Earnings and then work backwards.
  • You will only need to adjust the balance in one balance sheet account and add one balance sheet account for this problem.
  • See pages 218 and 221 of the loose leaf, 15th edition of the text for help on how to classify the various Investments.
  • Financial ratios can be found on page 246 of the loose-leaf, 15th edition of the text.
