1.E = 150 - 120 = 30
D = 40 + 30 = 70
C = 15 because there were no additional investments by stockholders
A = 85 - 15 - 40 = 30; or 85 - (15 + 40) = 30
B = 95 - 15 - 70 = 10; or 95 - (15 + 70) = 10

2.K = 20 + 170 = 190
J = 50 + 20 - 5 = 65
H = 10 + 30 = 40
F = 50 + 10 + 100 = 160
G = 275 - 65 - 40 = 170

3.P = 300 - 270 = 30
Q = 100 + 30 - 110 = 20
N = 85 - 35 = 50
L = 105 + 50 + 100 = 255
M = 95 + 85 + 110 = 290

This problem was designed for an equation-type solution, but some students may find a different approach more helpful in understanding the solution and its steps. Such an approach can be easily developed on the board as follows, using Case 1 as an example:
