# Dexter Construction Corporation is building a student condominium complex; it started construction on January 1, Year 1. Dexter borrowed $2.5 million on January 1 specifically for the project by issuing a 10%, 5-vear,$2.5 million note, which is payable on December 31 of Year 3. Dexter also had a 12%, 5-year, $3 million note payable and a 10%, 10-year,$1.8 million note payable outstanding all year. Calculate the weighted average interest rate on the non-construction-specific debt for Year 1.RE10-9 Refer to RE10-8. In Year 1, Dexter incurred costs as follows: Calculate Dexter’s weighted average accumulated expenditures.RE10-10 Using the information in RE10-8 and RE10-9, calculate Dexter’s capitalized interest on the student condominium complex for Year 1.

To determine

Compute the capitalized interest for Corporation D.

Explanation

Capitalized interest:

Interest Cost incurred to finance the construction of a long-term construction projects are known as capitalized interest.

Calculate the capitalized interest for Corporation D:

Capitalized Interest = (Weighted Average Accumulated Expenditures ×Interestrate)=$1,380,000(1)×10%=$138,000

Therefore, the amount of capitalized interest is \$138,000.

Note: Corporation D’s weighted average accumulated expenditures do not go beyond its borrowing on the project, therefore Corporation D uses the interest rate specified for this project (10%) to compute its capitalized interest
