I would appreciate the positive response and answer. Please explain I would like to understand this question. Many Thanks!!


Accounting is not my area. But the answer to this problem is obvious. Melinda is already up to her eyeballs in debt; she already owes 168,000+6000 on a business with total assets of 244,000. Further, the 168K far exceeds Melinda's personally invested capital of 70,000. Compare this to Sam.
