    a. increases (assets > w/ debits)
    b. increases (revenue > w/ credits)
    c. increases (liabilities > w/ credits)
    d. decreases (assets > w/ credits)
    e. increases (expenses > w/debits)
    f. increases (stockholders equity > w/ credits)

    h. same as “a”
    i. increases (acts the same as “b”)
    j. increases (expense)

    l. same as “c”

    Hope this helps

    The simplest way to remember is to break it down by category. Assets: Debit to increase, credit to decrease; Liabilities & Equity: Credit to increase, debit to decrease; Income: Credit to increase, debit to decrease; Expenses: debit to increase, credit to decrease.
