    The gain will be recognize in favor of Sue and Andrew. Not the partnership

    Sue will have his capital gain for the land

    and Andrew for the equipment and the building.

    But the parthnership will only enter the assets it will not earn anything:

    cash 12,000

    land 57,000

    equipment 14,000

    building 35,000

    sue capital account 69,000

    andrew capital account 49,000
