Cash went out of the business to pay the supplier, and a liability (notes payable) is established for the balance outstanding.

The Accounting Equation

This is true at any time and applies to each transaction. For this transaction the accounting equation is shown in the following table.

Fixed Asset Purchases With Note – Accounting Equation
Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity
Property + Cash = Notes payable +  None
650 – 350 = 300 + 0

In this case on the left hand side of the accounting equation, an asset (property) has been increased by the debit entry of 650, and another asset (cash) has been reduced by the credit entry of 350, this results in a net increase in assets of 300. On the right hand side of the accounting equation, a liability (notes payable) has been increased by an amount of 300.
