1. For each of the three independent cases that follow, provide the amounts to be reported on the January 1, 2015, financial statements immediately after the bonds are issued:
2. Assume that a retired person has written to you (an investment adviser) asking, “Why should I buy a bond at a premium when I can find one at a discount? Isn’t that stupid?
