Recording partner's original investment

Kimberly Payne and Arionna Maples decide to form a partnership by combining the assets of their separate businesses. Payne contributes the following assets to the partnership: cash, $20,000; accounts receivable with a face amount of 5145,000 and an allowance for doubtful accounts of $4,200; merchandise inventory with a cost of $92,000; and equipment with a cost of $136,000 and accumulated depreciation of $45,000.

The partners agree that $5,000 of the accounts receivable are completely worthless and are not to be accepted by the partnership, that $4,400 is a reasonable allowance for the uncollectibility of the remaining accounts, that the merchandise inventory is to be recorded at the current market price of $101,700. and that the equipment is to be valued at $81,200.

Journalize the partnership's entry to record Payne's investment.
