I am having a hard time calculating this my question is On April 1, 2011, the company paid an insurance company \$4,000 for a two-year fire insurance policy. The entire \$4,000 was debited to insurance expense.
How do I calculate?

Your question isn't clear.

Calculate what?

Do you need to calculate the portion of insurance that is a current expense for the year 2011 and the portion that is a prepaid expense or prepaid asset?

4000/2 = 2000. = 1 year expense
2000./12 = monthly expense for 1 year
Jan 2011 - Mar 31, 2011 = 3 month x monthly amount

Above is without knowing what you need to calculate.

Purchased dental equipment on January 1 for \$80,000, paying \$20,000 in cash and signing a \$60,000, 3-year note payable. The equipment depreciates \$400 per month. Interest is \$500 per month
