Therefore, based on this, there always exist an Accounting equation which states that the sum of all the assets is equal to sum of all outside liabilities (referred as Total liabilities) and Stockholders ‘equity (or owner’s equity)

The above equation always holds good irrespective of number of transactions handled by the business. Therefore, we can conclude that whenever there is one item (i.e. assets or Total liabilities or Owner’s equity) is missing for any reason. The same can be computed by applying the Accounting equation.

Requirement1:
