Multi-Entry Transaction
by: Dean

This will actually be a single transaction with three entries:

(1) Debit the Drawings account for $200.
(2) Credit the Cash account for $100.
(3) Credit the Inventory account for $100.

Note that even with multiple entries, the sum of debits must always equal the sum of credits. In this particular case: $200 = $100 + $100.
