Under the August 8th transaction listing in the middle of page 178, the instructions are confusing and incorrect. They should state: “Completed the series of designs that began on July 31 for which $1,400 cash was received in advance on July 19. The accrued revenues were adjusted on July 31st for the $800 of work that was completed and accepted during July.”
The July 31, 2011, post-closing trial balance for the Miller Design Studio is
on the next page.
