The following situations involve accounting principles and assumptions.
1. Piang Company owns buildings that are worth substantially more than they originally cost. In an effort to provide more relevant information, Piang reports the buildings at fair value in its accounting reports.
2. Delta Company includes in its accounting records only transaction data that can be expressed in terms of money.
3. Luke Witte, owner of Luke's Photography, records his personal living costs as expenses of the business.

For each of the three situations, say if the accounting method used is correct or incorrect. If correct, identify which principle or assumption supports the method used. If incorrect, identify which principle or assumption has been violated.
