Required: Using the book value method, would recording the conversion of 6% convertible bonds into common stock affect earnings? If so, by how much? Would earnings be affected if the market value method is used? If so, by how much.
Requirement: Were the 7% bonds issued at face value, at a discount, or at premium? Please explain and show your work, and not by showing the results using a financial calculator!!
