  2. Can you please explain why stocks are been debited for exercises 9.3 and 9.5. It’s my understanding that this is an equity account and should have a credit balance. I’m so confused. Thank you !

    • Im not good at explainations but I’ll give it a try so stock is basically the inventory you the owner hasn’t sold which means its automatically an asset to you and so the asset has a debit balance that’s why its on the debit side
