Question: Assume the same facts as in Exercise but in addition

Assume the same facts as in Exercise, but in addition, assume that Saratoga is itself in need of cash. It discounts the note received from Windsor at First Bank on July 1, 2013, at a discount rate of 8% per annum.
In Exercise, Saratoga Company owns 80% of the outstanding common stock of Windsor Company. On May 1, 2013, Windsor Company arranges a 1-year, $50,000 loan from Saratoga Company.
