A set-off agreement is a legal clause that allows a lender to seize a debtor's deposits when they default on a loan. In other words, if a borrower fails to repay a loan, the lender can use the funds in the borrower's bank account to offset the outstanding debt. Here's an example to illustrate how a set-off agreement works: Let's say John borrows $10,000 from Bank A. As part of the loan agreement, John agrees to a set-off clause that allows Bank A to seize funds from his bank account if he defaults on the loan. After a few months, John is unable to make the loan payments and defaults on the loan. At this point, Bank A can exercise the set-off agreement and seize funds from John's bank account to recover the outstanding debt. If John has $2,000 in his bank account, Bank A can take that amount to offset the debt. As a result, John's bank account balance will be reduced to $0, and the remaining $8,000 will still be owed to Bank A. Now, let's discuss how these transactions can be recorded using T accounts. #### Recording Transactions using T Accounts: A T account is a visual representation of individual accounts in double-entry bookkeeping. It helps track debits and credits for each account. In this example, we will use two T accounts: one for John's Bank Account and another for Bank A's Loan Receivable. 1. Initial balances: - John's Bank Account: $2,000 (debit) - Bank A's Loan Receivable: $10,000 (credit) 2. Transaction: John defaults on the loan, and Bank A exercises the set-off agreement by seizing $2,000 from John's bank account. - John's Bank Account: $2,000 (debit) -> $0 (debit) - Bank A's Loan Receivable: $10,000 (credit) -> $8,000 (credit) After this transaction, John's bank account balance is reduced to $0, and the outstanding loan balance is reduced to $8,000. It's important to note that the specific recording of transactions may vary depending on the accounting system and the specific circumstances of the set-off agreement. The example provided above is a simplified illustration to demonstrate the concept.

The boxplot below is of the sodium contents levels taken from a random sample of 30 bottles. With this data investigate the claim using SPSS to apply the appropriate test. Download the data and transfer it into SPSS. Check that your data transfer has been successful by obtaining the Std. Error of the mean for your data which should appear in SPSS output as 0.03900.. If you do not have this exact value, then you may have not transferred your data from the Excel file to SPSS correctly. Do not continue with the test until your value agrees as otherwise you may not have correct answers. Unless otherwise directed you should report all numeric values to the accuracy displayed in the SPSS output that is supplied when your data has been transferred correctly. In the following questions, all statistical tests should be carried out at the 0.05 significance level. Sample mean and median Complete the following concerning the mean and median of the data. mean =  mg/L 95% CI:  to  mg/L Based upon the 95% confidence interval, is it plausible that the average sodium content is 36.9 mg/L?      median:  mg/L The median value is      36.9 mg/L. Skewness Complete the following concerning the skewness of the data. Skewness statistic =        Std. Error =  The absolute value of the skewness statistic     less than 2 x Std. Error Therefore the data can be considered to come from a population that is      . Normality test Complete the following summary concerning the formal testing of the normality of the data. H0: The data come from a population that     normal H1: The data come from a population that     normal Application of the Shapiro-Wilk test indicated that the normality assumption     reasonable for sodium content (S-W(  )=  , p=   ). Main test Using the guidelines you have been taught that consider sample size, skewness and normality, choose and report the appropriate main test from the following ( Appropriate ONE ) You have selected that you wish to report the one-sample t-test. H0: The mean sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L H1: The mean sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L Application of the one-sample t-test indicated that the mean is      36.9 mg/L (t(  ) =  , p =   ). You have selected that you wish to report the Wilcoxon signed rank test. H0: The median sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L H1: The median sodium content     equal to 36.9 mg/L Application of the Wilcoxon signed rank test indicated that the median is      36.9 mg/L (z =  , N =  , p =   ).
