partnership. Reluctantly Chest, Legs and Abs have agreed to dissolve the partnership on the
following terms:
i. The stock is to be sold to Nelson Ltd for $4,000
ii. The fixed assets will be sold for $8,000 except for certain items with a book value of
$5,000 which will be taken over by Chest at an agreed valuation of $7,000
iii. The debtors, except for Jim, are expected to pay their accounts in full
iv. The costs of dissolution will be $800 and discounts received from creditors will be $500
