3 Running Head: UNIT 1 ASSIGNMENT Part 1 1. Accounting Equation- is the bond of assets, liabilities, and net assets organizing sources and resources. Assets = Liabilities + Net Assests The left side of the accounting equation are representation of what resources the company owns. The right side of the equation represents the claim for their resources otherwise known as liabilities which are of use for that particular organization’s creditor or lender. Net assets are used for liabilities. This equation is the key balance of accounting. (Finkler, 2013, p. 34). Example: Gateway Medical Center has $10,000 in assets. They have $3,000 in liabilities and $7,000 in net assets. Asset = Liability+ Net Asset $10,000 = $3,000 + $7,000 $10,000 = $10,000 The total amounts on each side of the equation balance out. 2. Asset- Anything with economic value that can help an organization provide care to the patient directly or indirectly. (Finkler, 2013, p. 32). Example: At Gateway Medical Center the purchase of special wardrobe for staff, patients, and visitors, gloves, paper products, beds, monitors, etc. are purchased. For the office supplies and electronics have been purchased. He also hired staff. Preston Andrews, the owner of Gateway Medical Center invested $30,000 of his own money. Asset = Liabilities + Net Asset $30,000 = 0 + $30,000 $30,000 = $30,000 Asset and net asset were affected. 3. Liability- Obligations an organization has to outside creditors such as money, employees, financial organizations, or anything else payable. (Finkler, 2013, p. 33).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
