On December 31, 20-1, A. Silver’s accounting equation was as follows: Assets (120 000) – Liabilities (50 000) = Equity ($70 000) a) If, during 20-2, the assets increased by $90 000 and the liabilities increased by $20 000, calculate the owner’s equity at December 31, 20-2. Show your calculations. $210 000 – $70 000 = $140 000 ∴ The Equity would be $140 000.

b) If a company’s liabilities increase by $25 000 and its equity decreases by $5 000, what change occurs in the assets? Show your calculations. $X – $75 000 = $65 000 ∴ $65 000 + $75 000 = X ∴ X = $140 000 ∴ The assets would go up $20 000
