Question: Anya and Nick Ramon local golf stars opened the Chip Shot

Anya and Nick Ramon, local golf stars, opened the Chip-Shot Driving Range on March 1, 2017, by investing $25,000 of their cash savings in the business. A caddy shack was constructed for cash at a cost of $8,000, and $800 was spent on golf balls and golf clubs. The Ramons leased five acres of land at a cost of $1,000 per month and paid the first month’s rent. During the first month, advertising costs totaled $750, of which $100 was unpaid at March 31, and $500 was paid to members of the high-school golf team for retrieving golf balls. All revenues from customers were deposited in the company’s bank account. On March 15, Anya and Nick withdrew a total of $1,000 in cash for personal living expenses. A $120 utility bill was received on March 31 but was not paid. On March 31, the balance in the company’s bank account was $18,900.
Anya and Nick thought they had a pretty good first month of operations. But, their estimates of profitability ranged from a loss of $6,100 to net income of $2,480.

With the class divided into groups, answer the following.
(a) How could the Ramons have concluded that the business operated at a loss of $6,100? Was this a valid basis on which to determine net income?
(b) How could the Ramons have concluded that the business operated at a net income of $2,480?
