On July 1, 2010, Brower Industries Inc. issued $8,900,000 of 9-year, 10% bonds at an effective interest rate of 12%, receiving cash of $7,936,343. Interest on the bonds is payable semiannually on December 31 and June 30. The fiscal year of the company is the calendar year.
What would the first semiannual interest payment on December 31, 2010, and the amortization of the bond discount, using the straight-line method? (Round to the nearest dollar.)
Perhaps some of the tutorials will assist you:
