                     Service Revenue                                         $24,000

working:Revenue accrued from the 10 days tour ie from  July 1 to 15=   Revenues per day x Numner of days of tours= $2,400 x 10 =$24,000

2. journal entry to record revenue for tours given from July 16 - July 31

Date                  Account                            Debit                 Credit

                    Service Revenue                                        $42,000

working:Revenue accrued from the 15 days tour ie from  July 16 to 31=   Revenues per day x Number of days of tours= $2,400 x 15=$36,000
