The following errors in the corporation's accounting have been discovered:

2. The inventory included $27,000 of merchandise that had been received at December 31 but for which no purchase invoices had been received or entered. Of this amount, $10,000 had been received on consignment; the remainder was purchased f.o.b. destination, terms 2/10, n/30.
3. Sales for the first four days in January 2011 in the amount of $30,000 were entered in the sales book as of December 31, 2010. Of these, $21,500 were sales on account and the remainder were cash sales.

a. Restate the current assets and liabilities sections of the balance sheet in accordance with good accounting practice. (Assume that both accounts receivable and accounts payable are recorded gross.) (List current liabilities with notes payable first.)
b. State the net effect of your adjustments on Agincourt Company's retained earnings balance. (For negative numbers use either a negative sign preceding the number, e.g. -45 or parenthesis, e.g. (45).)
