Working note:

Calculate the amount of cash from issuing bonds payable:

Cash from issuing bonds payable=( Issuance of bonds - Discount on bonds payable )=($450,000+$30,000)=$420,000

Calculate the amount of cash used to redeem bonds payable:

Cash used to redeem bonds payable=( Retire bonds of debit balance - Retire bonds of credit balance )=($150,000$12,000)=$138,000
