Here the cash account has a debit balance of $2700. We never have negative balances. The balance is always a positive number, is may be on the debit side, it may be on the credit side. Let’s look at the accounting equation again. A debit to cash must mean there is a credit to some other account. Example: I borrow $500 from the bank. I debit (increase) cash. I credit bank loan payable, a liability. I increased my liability. Thus, a credit to liabilities is an increase.

    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.
