On November 1, the beginning balance sheet showed Cash $7,000, Accounts Receivable $2,600, Supplies $600, Office Equipment $7,500, Accounts Payable $5,700, and Campbell, Capital $12,000. During November, the following transactions occurred.

3 Earned revenue of $11,500, of which $4,000 is paid in cash and the balance is due in December.

7 Withdrew $1,800 cash for personal use.
8 Paid salaries $3,300 and rent for November $1,600, as well as advertising expense $500.
