After the accounts are closed on July 3, 2008, prior to liquidating the partnership, the capital accounts of Ann Daniels, Harold Burton, and Carla Ramariz are $27,000, $4,500, and $32,000, respectively. Cash and noncash assets total $9,500 and $84,000, respectively. Amounts owed to creditors total $30,000. The partners share income and losses in the ratio of 2:1:1. Between July 3 and July 29, the noncash assets are sold for $54,000, the partner with the capital deficiency pays his deficiency to the partnership, and the liabilities are paid.
