Short-Term Borrowing with Restrictions

Rocky Mountain Products has a line-of-credit agreement with Norwest Bank that allows it to borrow up to $100,000 at any given time provided that Rocky Mountain’s current assets always exceed its current liabilities by the principal amount of the outstanding loan.

Without violating the loan restriction, how much more could Rocky Mountain borrow under its line of credit on January 1, 2019, to invest in inventory? To invest in new equipment? Explain.
