Question

Let’s examine a case using Greg’s Tunes and Sal’s Silly Songs. It is now the end of the first year of operations, and the stockholders want to know how well each business came out at the end of the year. Neither business kept complete accounting records and no dividends were paid. The businesses throw together the following data at year end:
Sal’s Silly Songs:
Total assets ............ $23,000
Common Stock ......... 8,000
Total revenues .......... 35,000
Total expenses .......... 22,000
Greg’s Tunes:
Total liabilities .......... $10,000
Common Stock .......... 6,000
Total expenses ........... 44,000
Net income ........... 9,000
To gain information for evaluating the businesses, the stockholders ask you ­several questions. For each answer, you must show your work to convince the stockholders that you know what you are talking about.
