    To Land A/c $64,000

    To Cash A/c $8,900

For the year ending December 31, Beard Clinical Supplies Co. mistakenly omitted adjusting entries for (1) $7,620 of unearned revenue that was earned, (2) earned revenue that was not billed of $10,480, and (3) accrued wages of $5,950. Indicate the combined effect of the errors on (a) revenues, (b) expenses, and (c) net income.



See explanation section


Since Beard Clinical Supplies Co. omitted adjusting entries that leads to either decrease or increase in the revenues, expenses, and net income.

Transactions 1 and 2 are related to Revenue.

Transaction 3 is related to Expenses.

All transactions are related to Net Income.

Journal entry will help to determine the effect.

Transaction - 1: Unearned Revenue (Debit) - $7,620

Service Revenue (Credit) - $7,620

Transaction - 2: Accounts Receivable (Debit) - $10,480

Service Revenue (Credit) - $10,480

Transaction - 3: Wages expense (Debit) - $5,950

Wages Payable (Credit) - $5,950

A) Revenue = Transaction (1 + 2) = $7,620 + 10,480 = $18,100 was missing. It means revenues were understated (decreased) by $18,100.

B) Expenses = Transaction 3 = $5,950. It was understated also.

C) Net Income = $18,100 - 5,950 = $12,150. Therefore, Net income was also understated.


Fuente, Inc., has identified an investment project with the following cash flows. Year Cash Flow 1 $ 950 2 1,180 3 1,400 4 2,140 a. If the discount rate is 8 percent, what is the future value of these cash flows in Year 4?





The computation of the future value of these cash flows in year 4 is shown below:

= Year 1 cash flow × (1 + interest rate)^year + Year 2 cash flow × (1 + interest rate)^year + Year 3 cash flow × (1 + interest rate)^year + Year 4 cash flow × (1 + interest rate)^year

= $950 × 1.08^3 + $1,180 × 1.08^2 + $1,400 × 1.08^1 + $2,140

= $950 × 1.259712  +  $1,180 × 1.1664  + $1,400 × 1.08 + $2,140

= $1,196.7264  + $1,376.352  + $1,512  + $2,140

= $6,225.08


A copy machine acquired on July 1 at a cost of $1,450 has an estimated useful life of four years. Assuming that it will have a residual value of $250, determine the depreciation for the first year by the double-declining-balance method. Round your answer to two decimal places.



Depreciation after first year will be $725


We have given cost of the machine = $1450

Life of the the machine = 4 year

Rate of depreciation will be equal to %

Now according to double-declining-balance method rate of depreciation will be double

So rate of depreciation will be = 2×25 = 50%

So depreciation after first year will be =
