    The misstatement would result in the overstatement of assets by $9,000 and also an overstatement of stockholders equity by the same amount.

    Explanation:

    When the balance of year end inventory is overstated, the cost of goods sold will be understated and this will result in an overstatement of the net income (and by extension, owners equity).

    Given that a company inadvertently counted its inventory as $98,000 instead of the correct amount of $89,000

    Amount overstated = $98,000 - $89,000

    = $9,000
