j.Paid installment due on note payable, $675.

n.Paid $195 for advertising in January.


1.Record the foregoing transactions directly in the following T accounts, without journalizing: Cash; Accounts Receivable; Office Supplies; Prepaid Insurance; Showroom Equipment; Office Furniture; Notes Payable; Accounts Payable; Capital Stock; Professional Fees; Rent Expense; Salary Expense; Advertising Expense; Drafting Expense; Miscellaneous Expense. To the left of the amount entered in the accounts, place the appropriate letter to identify the transaction. 2.Determine the balances of the T accounts having two or more debits or credits. A memorandum balance should be inserted in accounts having both debits and credits, in the manner illustrated in the chapter. For accounts with entries on one side only (such as Professional Fees), there is no need to insert the memorandum balance in the item column. For accounts containing only a single debit and a single credit (such as Notes Payable), the memorandum balance should be inserted in the appropriate item column. Accounts containing a single entry only (such as Prepaid Insurance) do not need a memorandum balance. 3. Prepare a trial balance for Daphne Designs, Inc. as of August 31 of the current year.
