Summary of Week 2
A competent accountant should have the confidence and ability, both mentally and using a calculator, to be able to add, subtract, multiply, divide as well as use decimals, fractions and percentages.

The most important equation in accounting is the accounting equation, which states that Assets (A) = Capital (C) + Liabilities (L).
