For example Amounts paid to mall for rent is an expense, so do I just list it as a debit it on one side and credit it on another? I am going to attach my assignment, because I do not understand any of it, hardly. Maybe you can give me some clarity or help as I have been trying to hire a tutor with no success, it is due tomorrow at midnight. Please help!
