Calculate the Owner’s Equity of Company G as on December 31, 2015.

Assets =  Liabilities + Owners' EquityOwners' Equity =  Assets  Liabilities=  $720,000$180,000=  $540,000 Hence, the Owner’s Equity of Company G as on December 31, 2015 is$540,000.

b)

Calculate the Owner’s Equity of Company G as on December 31, 2016, assuming assets increased by $96,500 and liabilities increased by$15,000 during 2016.

Assets of 2016 = Assets of 2015 + incerase in 2016= $720,000+$96,500= $816,500Liabilities of 2016= Liabilities of 2015 + incerase in 2016=$180,000+30,000=$606,500Owners' Equity = AssetsLiabilities=$816,500$210,000=$606,500

Hence, the Owner’s Equity of Company G as on December 31, 2016 is $606,500. c) Calculate the Owner’s Equity of Company G as on December 31, 2016, assuming assets decreased by$168,000 and liabilities increased by $15,000 during 2016. Assets of 2016 = Assets of 2015 decerase in 2016=$720,000168,000=$552,000Liabilities of 2016 = Liabilities of 2015 + incerase in 2016=$180,000+15,000=$195,000Owners' Equity = AssetsLiabilities=$552,000$195,000=$357,000
