  1. 4.  What is the book value of the equipment at the end of January?

Because furniture and equipment are $12,000 I assume half of that is equipment. With the information above saying that $200 had depreciated $6,000-$200 would be a $5800 value for the equipment.

 

  1. 5.  Alice and Bob had a small loss for the month. What happened to cash? Explain.

Inventory was $3,000 but in January it was calculated that $3,500 was spent. That means $500 dollars of inventory was not expected giving the loss of $500.
