Case study: 21.2 balanced books bookkeeping

Jessica and David are student interns at Balanced Books Bookkeeping. They have taken several
business math and accounting classes and are now applying what they have learned to real-life situ-
ations. They enjoy their internship, but they are sometimes surprised by the assignments they are
given. Luckily, they work together, so they share the assignments and learn from each other. Their
most recent assignment is to take a listing of accounts provided by one of Balanced Books’ clients
and turn them into a balance sheet and income statement. David suggests that their client might ap-
preciate it if they also performed a vertical analysis of each statement. Jessica suggests that they
should also compute the current ratio and the acid-test ratio.
