Required

2. Calculate the foreign exchange gain or loss on the bonds payable for the year ended December 31, 20X9.
3. Prepare an independent calculation of the translation gain or loss for 20X9, assuming that Maple’s functional currency is the US dollar.
4. “Since the current- rate method uses the current rate to translate capital assets, the translated amount should represent the current value of the capital assets in Canadian dollars.” Is this a valid statement? Brieflyexplain.
