Question: Clapton Guitar Company entered into the following transactions during 2016

Clapton Guitar Company entered into the following transactions during 2016. [The transactions were properly recorded in permanent (balance sheet) accounts unless otherwise indicated.]
Date Transaction
Jan. 25 Purchased $480 of office supplies.
Feb. 1 Rented a warehouse from Hendrix Company, paying 1 year’s rent of $3,600 in advance. Recorded the $3,600 payment as rent expense.
Mar. 1 Borrowed $10,000 from the bank, signing a 1-year note at an annual interest rate of 12%. The bank insisted on collecting the interest in advance, so it withheld the interest amount from the funds disbursed to Clapton. The company recorded the transaction as a debit to Cash, $8,800, a debit to Interest Expense, $1,200, and a credit to Notes Payable, $10,000.
May 1 Purchased office equipment for $15,000, paying $3,000 down and signing a 2-year, 12% (annual rate) note payable for the balance. The office equipment is expected to have a useful life of 10 years and a residual value of $1,500. Straight-line depreciation is appropriate.
May 31 Purchased a 3-year comprehensive insurance policy for $720.
Aug. 1 Sold land for $9,000. The purchaser made a $2,000 down payment and signed a 1-year, 10% note for the balance. The interest and principal will be collected on the maturity date.
