### Explanation of Solution

Bonds: Bonds are long-term promissory notes that are issued by a company while borrowing money from investors to raise fund for financing the operations.

Bonds Payable: Bonds payable are referred to long-term debts of the business, issued to various lenders known as bondholders, generally in multiples of $1,000 per bond, to raise fund for financing the operations. Discount on bonds payable: It occurs when the bonds are issued at a low price than the face value. Straight-line amortization method: It is a method of bond amortization that spreads the amount of the bond discount equally over the interest period.
