Question
Asked Jan 21, 2019

The end part of the question wouldn't fit in one snip picture so I have copied and pasted the text from the question. I am so lost on this question on how to break it down piece by piece. My numbers aren't adding up correctly at all, I have been trying over and over again for almost 40 minutes and keep going in circles.

On January 1, 2019, Sharon Matthews established Tri-City Realty, which completed the following transactions during the month:
Jan. 1 Sharon Matthews transferred cash from a personal bank account to an account to be used for the business, $31,000.
2 Paid rent on office and equipment for the month, $3,050.
3 Purchased supplies on account, $2,250.

7 Paid office salaries, $2,600.
8 Determined that the cost of supplies used was $1,050.
9 Withdrew cash for personal use, $2,200.
Required:
1. Journalize entries for transactions Jan. 1 through 9. Refer to the Chart of Accounts for exact wording of account titles.
2. Post the journal entries to the T accounts, selecting the appropriate date to the left of each amount to identify the transactions. Determine the account balances after all posting is complete. Accounts containing only a single entry do not need a balance.

4. Determine the following:
a. Amount of total revenue recorded in the ledger.
b. Amount of total expenses recorded in the ledger.
c. Amount of net income for January.
