ACCT 402 CONNECT CHP 15 15-1 A partnership has gone through liquidation and now reports the following account balances: Cash $ 16,000 Loan from Jones 3,000 Wayma n, capital (2,000) (deficit) Jones, capital (5,000) (deficit) Fuller, capital 13,000 Rogers, capital 7,000 Profits and losses are allocated on the following basis: Wayman, 30 percent; Jones, 20 percent; Fuller, 30 percent; and Rogers, 20 percent. Which of the following events should occur now? (Do not round intermediate calculations.) Jones should receive $3,000 cash because of the loan balance. Jones should receive $3,000, Fuller $8,800, and Rogers $4,200. Fuller should receive $10,600 and Rogers $5,400. Fuller should receive $11,800 and Rogers $4,200. The $16,000 available cash can be distributed but should be done under the assumption that all deficit balances will be total losses. After offsetting Jones' loan against his deficit capital balance, both Jones and Wayman have deficits of $2,000; total $4,000. Fuller and Rogers, the two partners with positive capital balances, share profits in a 30:20 relationship (the equivalent of a 60%:40% ratio). Fuller would absorb $2,400 of the potential $4,000 loss with Rogers being allocated $1,600. The remaining capital balances ($10,600 and $5,400) are safe capital balances and those amounts can be immediately distributed. 15-2 A partnership has the following account balances: Cash, $92,000; Other Assets, $650,000; Liabilities, $317,000; Nixon (50% of profits and losses), $200,000; Cleveland (30%), $140,000; Pierce (20%), $85,000. The company liquidates, and $19,000 becomes available to the partners. Who gets the $19,000? (Leave no cells blank - be certain to enter "0" wherever required.)
