Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The 12,000 is both cash (asset on balance sheet) and equity (Shareholders equity, on balance sheet). 

The 5,000 is office equipment (an asset) and because it is so high in value, it is something we have to depreciate.

For the 12,000:

Debit: Cash 12000

Credit: Shareholders Equity 12000

For the equipment purchase:

Debit: Office Equipment 5000

Credit: Cash 5000

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
