To determine

Calculate the present value of the bonds payable.

### Explanation of Solution

Time value of money: Any amount invested today earns an additional income, called interest income, after a certain period. This is called as time value of money.

Present Value: The value of today’s amount expected to be paid or received in the future at a compound interest rate is called as present value.

Determine the present value of the bonds payable.

Step 1: Calculate the semiannual interest on bonds.

Interest=Face value×Face interest rate×Interest time period=$42,000,000×11%×612=$2,310,000

Step 2: Calculate the present value of interest.

 Particulars Amount Interest payment (a) $2,310,000 PV factor at semiannual market interest rate of 4.5% for 10 periods (b) 7.91272 Present value (a)×(b)$18,278,383

Table (1)

Note: The present value factor for 10 periods at 4.5% interest would be 7.91272 (Refer Exhibit 10 in the chapter for present value factor).

Step 3: Calculate the present value of lump sum payment of \$42,000,000 (principal amount) at 4
