    Accounting (help with a classified balance sheet)
    Hello people I'm new here, and I'm studying for an accounting exam, and I'm studying up and practising but there is one exercise that I can't make heads or tail of it and I hope you guys can help.

    This is a partial adjusted trial balance and it shows the necessary accounts to prepare a classified balance sheet.

    Balance Sheet Classified
    Balance Sheet breaks down three categories: asset= Liability+SE


    Current Asset (classify the ones that easily convert into cash fast first)
    Cash 20000
    AR 11000
    Supplies 4000
    Prepaid Insurance 6000
    Total Current Assets 41000

    Property,plant, and Eqipment
    Audio Equipment 205000
    Less: Audio Accu. Depre (29000)
    Total Property, Plant, and Equipment 176000

    Total Assets 217000

    Liability and Stockholder Equity

    Current Liability (Due less than a year or fiscal year, which ever comes first)
    Account Payable 19000
    Salaries payable 3000
    Total Current Liability 22000

    Long-Term Liability (More than a year)
    Notes payable 70000

    Total Liability 92000

    Stockholder Equity
    J Franco Capital 112000
    Less: J Franco drawings (14000)
    Retained Earnings 27000
    Total Stockholder Equity 125000

    Total liability and Stockholder's Equity 217000

    Now, notice that Total Assets ($217000) = total liability and SE ($217000)

    Hope this help... gl. :)
