Question: Aztec Corporation purchased 70 of the outstanding shares of Inca

Aztec Corporation purchased 70% of the outstanding shares of Inca Limited on January 1, 20X2, at a cost of $ 80,000. Aztec has always used the cost method to account for its investments. On January 1, 20X2, Inca had common shares of $ 50,000 and retained earnings of $ 30,000, and fair values were equal to carrying value for all of its net assets except for inventory (fair value was $ 9,000 less than carrying value) and equipment (fair value was $ 24,000 greater than carrying value). The equipment had an estimated remaining life of six years on January 1, 20X2.
The following are the separate- entity financial statements of Aztec and Inca at December 31, 20X5:
