The opening cash balance is $2,144, and the opening bank balance is $910. In the book, the EFT rent collection is added to the cash balance because this amount is directly deposited into the bank by the customer. The error check is subtracted because the wrong check amount is credited to the cash account. The amount of the NSF check is subtracted from the cash balance because the NSF check shows the insufficient bank balance of the customer.
