# 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.RE10-11Refer to the information in RE 10-8 and RE10-9. Assume that Dexter borrowed SI million specifically for the project by issuing a 10%, 5-year, $1 million note (instead of borrowing$2.5 million as stated in RE10-8). Calculate Dexter’s capitalized interest on the student condominium complex in Year 1.

 $1,000,000 × 10% =$100,000 $380,000 × 11.25% (1) =$42,750 $1,380,000 × =$142,750

Table (1)

Therefore, the capitalized interest is $142,750. Note: Interest rate = 10% on the first$1,000,000 and 11.25% on remaining 380,000.
