    The adjusting entry is shown below:

    Salary expense A/c Dr $56,000

    To Salary payable A/c $33,600

    To Deductions payable A/c $22,400

    (Being the accrued wages are recorded and the remaining balance is credited to deductions payable account)

    The computations are shown below:

    For salary expense, it would be

    = $70,000 * 4 days : 5 days

    = $56,000

    For salary payable, it would be

    = $42,000 * 4 days : 5 days

    = $33,600
