#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Given about Jones and Company,

Balance in retained earnings account at 2020 end = \$990000

2021 net income = \$350000

Dividend paid in 2021 = 40% of net income = 40% of 350000 = \$140000

So, Addition to retained earning in 2021 = Net income - dividends = 350000 - 140000 = \$210000

So, ending balance in retained earnings at the end of 2021 = beginning balance + addition to retained earning

=> ending balance in retained earnings at the end of 2021 = 990000 + 210000 = \$1200000
