1. If beginning capital was $28,000, ending capital is $65,000, and the owner's
   withdrawals were $31,000, the amount of net income or net loss was:

    Beginning owner’s capital -withdrawals +additional investment +Net income
    (loss)=Owner’s capital at the end of the period

    28,000- 31,000+NI (NL)=65,000

    Net income of $68,000

2. The balance in the prepaid rent account before adjustment at the end of the year is
   $15,000, which represents five months' rent paid on October 1. The adjusting
