Mr. Green uses $5,000 of the company's cash to place a down-payment on a used truck that costs  $15,000, and he signs a note payable that requires him to pay the remaining $10,000 in eighteen  months. This transaction decreases one type of asset (cash) by $5,000, increases another type of  asset (vehicles) by $15,000, and increases a liability (notes payable) by $10,000. The accounting  equation remains in balance, and Mr. Green now has two types of assets ($10,000 in cash and a  vehicle worth $15,000), a liability (a $10,000 note payable), and owner's equity of $15,000. Given the large number of transactions that companies usually have, accountants need a more  sophisticated system for recording transactions than the one shown on the previous page.  Accountants use the double-entry bookkeeping system to keep the accounting equation in balance  and to double-check the numerical accuracy of transaction entries. Under this system, each

    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.
