### Cost of Goods = Beginning Inventory + Purchases - _________________________

Explanation
The equation for calculating the Cost of Goods is the sum of the Beginning Inventory and Purchases, minus the Ending Inventory. This is because the Cost of Goods is the total cost of the goods that were sold during a specific period, and the Ending Inventory represents the value of the goods that remain unsold at the end of that period. Therefore, subtracting the Ending Inventory from the sum of the Beginning Inventory and Purchases gives us the cost of the goods that were sold.

This is calculated by starting with the opening balance of \$547.43 and adding the deposits made on January 4th (\$100.00) and January 15th (\$350.00). Then, subtracting the checks written on January 2nd (\$50.13), January 7th (\$10.09), January 19th (\$250.00), and January 26th (\$101.19). Finally, subtracting the monthly service charge of \$5.00. The ending balance on the bank statement is \$581.02, but after reconciling it with the check register, the correct balance is \$740.98.

The credit to Sales Tax Payable for \$7.69 represents the amount of sales tax that needs to be paid to the tax authorities. The credit to Income for \$195.00 represents the revenue earned from the sale. Therefore, the statement is true.
