Explanation of Solution

Common stock: These are the ordinary shares that a corporation issues to the investors in order to raise funds. In return, the investors receive a share of profit from the profits earned by the corporation in the form of dividend.

Preferred stock: The stock that provides a fixed amount of return (dividend) to its stockholder before paying dividends to common stockholders is referred as preferred stock.

Record the issuance of common stock on October 31.

October 31

Cash (400,000 shares×$18)7,200,000

Table (1)

  • Cash is an asset account. The amount is increased, because cash is received upon stock issued. Therefore, debit Cash account with the amount of cash received.
  • Common Stock is a stockholders’ equity account and the amount is increased due to issuance of common stock. Therefore, credit Common Stock account with the value of common stock.
  • Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par Value is a stockholders’ equity account and the amount is increased due to increase in capital

(b)

To determine

Calculate the total paid in capital as of November 19.
