Can anyone please show me the calculation for these problems: Burlin Company starts the year with \$100,000 in assets and \$80,000 in liabilities. Net Income for the year is \$25,000, and no dividends are paid. How much is owner’s equity at the end of the year?

Chapman Inc. doubles the amount of its assets from the beginning to the end of the year. Liabilities at the end of the year amount to \$40,000, and owner’s equity is \$20,000. What is the amount of Chapman’s assets at the beginning of the year?

During the year, the liabilities of Dixon Enterprise triple in amount. Assets at the beginning of the year amount to \$30,000, and owner’s equity is \$10,000. What is the amount of liabilities at the end of the year?

• Accounting Math -

100,000 + 25,000 - 80,000 = ?

2x - 40,000 = 20,000
Solve for x

• Accounting Math -

Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Equity

\$100, 000 = 80, 000 + _____

100, 000= 80, 000 + 20, 000
100, 000= 100, 000

Chapman

At the end of the Year:
Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Equity
? = 40, 000 + 20, 000

Therefore assets at the beginning of the year was
30, 000

Since it was doubled at the end of the year, then 30, 000 multiply by 2 we get \$60, 000.
