Instructions

Prepare the three adjusting entries that were made by the King Street Zoo on April 30

Explanation:-
1). Prepaid Rent is \$12000 after adjusting entry.
As the rent is paid in advance for 4 months, the balance in prepaid rent is for 3 months.
Rent per month = \$12000 / 3 = \$4000
It means Prepaid rent on Apr 1 = \$16000
Charged to Rent expense in April month = \$4000
Balance in Prepaid rent account on Apr 30 = \$12000

2). Depreciation per year = \$7200
Depreciation per month = \$7200 / 12 = \$600

3). Tickets are sold in advance means sold on April 1.
That means all of revenue on April 1 is unearned revenue.
During April 25 tickets used by customers i.e 25 * \$4 = \$100
Hence this revenue is tfd from unearned revenue to revenue income.
Else balance of receipts from tickets sold on April 1 remains unearned.
