    Your textbook may not have went over these exact problems, but I'm sure it went over the basic accounting equation and what goes into calculating net income and stockholders' equity. This problem just tests your knowledge of that.

    (1)Stockholder's equity, January 1, 20X1

    Basic accounting equation

    Assets = Liabilities + Stockholders' Equity

    110,000 = 50,000 + Stockholders' Equity must be 70,000

    December 31,20X1

    124,000 = 55,000 + Stockholders' Equity must be 69,000

    (2)Net Income for 20X1

    Since net income increases Stockholders' Equity and dividends decrease it:

    Jan. 1 Stockholders' Equity + Net Income - Dividends = Dec. 31 Stockholders' Equity

    70,000 + Net Income - 5,000 = 69,000

    Net Income = $4,000

    (3)Cost of the goods sold for 20X1

    Sales - Cost of Goods Sold - Operating Expenses = Net Income

    354,000 - Cost of Goods Sold - 200,000 = 4,000

    Cost of Goods Sold = $150,000
