The solution of Question No 27 Chapter No 5: –
Following items are already given in the question: –
- Additional Capital= 20,000
- Drawing = 12,000
- liabilities= 6,000
- Total Assets= 2,00,000
- Profit = 20,000
So, to find out the capital as on 1st April 2017.
1st with the Help of Following Formula, we can find out Closing Capital :
Closing Capital = Total assets – Total Liabilities
Closing Capital = 2,00,000 – 6,000
Closing Capital = 1,94,000/-
Now, with the Help of Following Formula, we can find out Opening Capital or capital as on 1st April 2017:
Opening Capital = Closing Capital – Addition – Profit + Drawing
Opening Capital = 1,94,000 – 20,000 – 20,000 + 12,000
Opening Capital/ capital as on 1st April 2017 = 1,66,000/-
