a. Record the journal entries required over the five-year period, assuming that Q-Mart accounts for this arrangement as an operating lease.
b. Compute the effective interest rate on the lease, and record the journal entries required over the five-year period if Q-Mart accounts for this arrangement as a capital lease. Assume that the capitalized asset is depreciated over a five-year period, using the straight-line method with no salvage value.
