<span>You are given Nigel's current balance of $668.47 in an account he has held for 15 years. Also you are given an initial deposit of $497. You are asked to find the simple interest rate on the account. You will use the simple interest formula, F = P(1 + rn) were F is the current balance, P is the principal amount deposited, r is the rate and n is the number of years.

</span>F = P(1 + rn)

668.47 = 497(1 + r(15))

r = 0.023 or **2.3%**

**Answer:**

**Bond Price - Zero Coupon Bond = 260.8460 rounded off to 260.85**

**Explanation:**

A zero coupon bond is a kind of bond which pays no periodic interest of coupon payments. Instead it is offered at a discount and it pays the par/face value at maturity. The difference between the par/face value and the issue price is the interest rate which is embedded in price of the bond. Thus, the formula to calculate the price of a zero coupon bond is as follows,

Bond Price - Zero Coupon Bond = Face Value / (1+r)^n

Where,

- r is the required rate of return
- n is the number of periods till maturity

Bond Price - Zero Coupon Bond = 1000 / (1+0.0695)^20

Bond Price - Zero Coupon Bond = 260.8460 rounded off to 260.85

Answer:

Please see below

Explanation:

With regards to the above, we need to compute first the predetermined overhead rate in order to ascertain whether it is over or under applied overhead

Predetermined overhead rate = Estimated overhead cost / Direct labor cost

= $115,500 / $125,300

= 0.92

We can now compute the under or over applied overhead as seen below;

= Actual direct labor cost × predetermined overhead rate - Actual overhead

= $118,000 × 0.92 - $107,700

= $108,560 - $107,700

= $860

Because the above amount is positive, is over applied overhead and the journal entry would be;

Manufacturing overhead account Dr $860

To Costs of goods sold account Cr $860

(Being over applied overhead closed)

**Answer:**

$2,857

**Explanation:**

Cost of goods sold (COGS) refers to the relevant cost incurred to acquire or produce the products being sold a company during a particular period.

The formula for calculating the COGS is as follows:

COGS = Beginning inventories + Purchases - Ending inventories

From the question, we have the following for 2012:

Beginning stock = $590

Purchases = $2,770

Ending inventory = 503

Therefore, we have:

COGS for 2012 = $590 + $2,770 - $503 = $2,857

Therefore, Jacob should record **$2,857** as Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) on its 2012 income statement.
