    Actually I've solved most of the problem, however I'm confused about the kind of information they need in this part:
    Prepare the entry to allocate Snider's debit balance to Mantle and Mays.
    Prepare the entry to record the final distribution of cash.
    Account/Description Debit Credit
    1. I put here

    Cash 56,110 (thats
    55,310+800)
    Depreciation 5,370
    loss of realization 19,200


    2. ? ?
    ? ?
    ? ?

    And in the first part where it says: Post to the cash and capital accounts:
    cash
    Bal.27,700 (3)44,230
    (1)55,310 (5)39,580

    (4) 800
    83,610 ?

    M. Mantle, Capital
    (2)9,600 Bal. 33,300
    (5)39,580
    ? 23,730

    M. Mays, Capital
    (2)5,760 Bal. 21,610
    (5)39,580
    ? 15,850


    M. Snider, Capital
    (2)3,840 Bal. 3,840
    (4) 800
    ? 0
