How to calculate complete withdrawal in a partnership liquidating?

During the complete withdrawal of a partnerships interest in a partnership, the partners basis for the liquidating distribution will be the same as the adjusted basis in the partnerships interest. However, this amount will be reduced by any amounts of cash received.

Gain – will be recognized upon the partnerships complete withdrawal if the cash received exceeds the amount of the partners basis in the partnership. 

Loss – will be recognized if the partner liquidating receives money that is less that their adjusted basis in the partnership.
