b. Depreciation of $25,000 on equipment has not been recorded.
c. Rak’s employees have earned wages of $11,750, but that amount has not been recognized in the accounts.
d. No provision has been made for estimated income taxes payable of $13,500.
e. A liability account called Unearned Subscriptions Revenue has a balance of $20,250, but one-third of these subscriptions have already been mailed to subscribers.

2. Recast the condensed figures from the financial statements after you have made the necessary adjustments.
