(d) Give the total of the amounts on the Cr. side of A.'s Ledger

Cr. (c) He has posted, from a Journal entry " Goods Dr. to W.

Brown" to the proper side of Goods a/c, but not to

Brown's a/c at all. (d) He has journalised “Cash Dr. to W. Brown 591. 10s.,"

when the amount should have been 591. 15s. He will make no transfer in the Ledger except as a post from

a Journal entry. Show how each of these errors is to be

rectified. 7. The books of certain Government Departments are kept in the following manner : they have (a) The entries in the Journal divided between two money

columns, all the amounts to be debited being placed in

one and those to be credited in the other. (6) The Journal totalled throughout, the sums of each page

being taken to the next, and so on through the year. (c) No entries in the Ledger except those which correspond

with a Journal entry. (d) The 'trial balance 'made by taking the total of each side of

each a/c, whether that a/c be balanced or not. What advantages are gained by these means ? 8. Assume that you are agent to a gentleman who lives abroad, and that

the nature of the business you transact for him is as follows:

To receive payment of debts due to him, which shall always be paid in Bills, acting in this respect on a memorandum periodically furnished to you. To pay all the bills received into a banker's in sufficient time for their collection, and to order him to remit to your principal such sums as may from time to time seem to you advisable.

It is required also that you keep for your employer a set of books which shall record your transactions by the system of Double Entry, showing, each in a separate account, the following facts :(a) The amount, at any time, owing by each of the Debtors

respectively.
(6) The total amount owing by them, i.e. the total amount of

debts outstanding at any time.
(c) The amount in your own hands.
(d) The amount at the banker's.
