Do liabilities and equity decrease your assets or do they increase them?

for example, If total liabilities increased by $15,000 and owner’s equity increased by $5,000 during a period of time, then total assets must change by what amount and direction during that same period?

in would be 20,00- dollars but dies the total assets increase by 20000 or decrease by 20000
