c. A debit of $11,000 to Accounts Receivable was not posted.

d. A return of $150 of defective supplies was erroneously posted as a $1,500 credit to Supplies.

e. An insurance policy acquired at a cost of $1,200 was posted as a credit to Prepaid Insurance.

f. The balance of Notes Payable was understated by $20,000.

g. A credit of $4,800 in Accounts Payable was overlooked when determining the balance of the account.

h. A debit of $7,000 for withdrawal by the owner was posted as a credit to Terry Colby, Capital.

i. The balance of $58,100 in Rent Expense was entered as $51,800 in the trial balance.

j. Gas, Electricity, and Water Expense, with a balance of $24,150, was omitted from the trial balance.


1. Prepare a corrected unadjusted trial balance as of August 31, 2019.
