    The balance in retained earnings will be $3,810

    Explanation:

    For computing the ending balance of the retained earning, first, we have to compute the net income

    So, the net income would be equal to

    = Service revenue + interest revenue - Salaries and wages expense - Travel expense

    = $206 + $31 - $90 - $37

    = $110

    Now we can find out the ending balance of retained earnings. It is shown below:

    = Beginning retained earning balance + net income - dividend paid

    = $3,700 + $110 - $0

    = $3,810
