    Asset will increase by $75,000 (DR) and liability will as well increase by $75,000 (CR)


    With the purchase of Office Equipment for $75,000, Assets balance will increase (DR) and liability balance (i. e account payable) will equally increase with the same amount.

    Asset naturally has a debit balance. Any addition will be debited and then the balance will increase.

    Liability has a credit balance. Any addition will be credited, hence increase the balance of the liability.
