Question:

1. An instrument store gives a 10% discount to all students off the original cost of an instrument. During a back to school sale an additional 15% is taken off the discounted price. Julie, a student at the local high school, purchases a flute for $306. How much did it originally cost? A. $325 B. $375 C. $400 D. $408 E. $425

Shaikh R.
Answer:

If you cant do the equation it's better to start calculating the options for e.g: C) $400 If $400 is the right answer then it means it is the original price so we will first give a discount of 10% as it says in the question. 400 * 0.1 = 40. Deduct 40 from $400 because the first discount was $40. So after first discount it is 360. Then an additional discount incurred was 15% on the discounted item. So 360 * 0.85 = $306. I can also tell you the more easy way to find the answer but i wanted to explain in detail. The question was taken from the internet but the answer was purely from my side and ofcourse the explanation.

Question:

What are the 5 basic accounting heads? and how do we distinguish what goes in debit or credit when increased or decreased?

Shaikh R.
Answer:

5 basic principles are: 1) Assets: The things that you own for e.g car, house, mobile etc. Assets when increased goes to the debit side and when decreased goes to the credit side. 2) Liability: The things or money that you owe to others for e.g accounts payable. Liability when increased goes to the credit side and vice versa. 3) Equity: Also known as Capital. Your net worth. Increase goes to capital and vice versa. 4) Income: for e.g salary or commission. Increase goes to credit and vice versa. 5) Expenses: for e.g rent expense. You took the service now you have to pay. Expenses increased goes to Debit and vice versa.
