## The Accounting Equation

In accounting, it is understood that every business activity always has a two-sided effect
on the business. This two-sided effect is best illustrated in the accou~ting equ~ti~n., which
states that the asset of the business entity should always be equal to the business's total
capital added -to it~ total liabilitie 's to its suppliers. Thus , I ' ; l >.,.·,·

You and your friends , who happened to be a group of accountants, decided to establish a..
