Problem 3-3 (page 211-212)                                          
    should be classified as a capital lease because the lease contains a                              
  bargain purchase option.                                        
    should be classified as an operating lease because it does not meet                              
  any of the four criteria for classifying a lease as a capital lease.                                
    should be classified as a capital lease because the lease term is equal                              
  to 80 percent of the estimated economic life of the equipment, which exceeds                              
  the 75 percent or more criterion.                                      
b. Borman records the following liability amounts at inception:                                  
    Borman does not record a liability at the inception of the lease.                              
    Borman records as a liability at the inception of the lease an amount                              
  equal to the present value at the beginning of the lease term of minimum lease                              
  payments during the lease term, excluding that portion of the payments representing                            
  executory costs such as insurance, maintenance, and taxes to be paid by the lessor,                            
  including any profit thereon. However, if the amount so determined exceeds the fair                            
  value of the equipment at the inception of the lease, the amount recorded as a                              
  liability should be the fair value.                                      
    Borman records as a liability at the inception of the lease an amount                              
  determined in the same manner as for Lease J, and the payment called for in the                              
  bargain purchase option should be included in the minimum lease payments.                              
    Borman allocates each minimum lease payment between a reduction                              
  of the liability and interest expense so as to produce a constant periodic rate of                              
  interest on the remaining balance of the liability.                                    
    Borman charges minimum lease (rental) payments to rental expense                              
  as they become payable.                                        
    Borman allocates each minimum lease payment in the same manner                              
  as for Lease J.                                          
Problem 3-6 (page 213-214)                                          
  In the case of environmental liabilities, there are several unknowns that are especially                            
  difficult to predict. The unknowns relate to the clean up and to the lawsuits that result                            
  from the hazardous waste. Select all that apply:                                    
    The company cannot predict the timing of an environmental tragedy such                            
    as that which occurred in the Union Carbide factory.                                
The company knows it will be identified as a potentially responsible party                            
    in a yet uncovered hazardous waste site. This can include a former site of                            
    the company.                                        
If the company is identified as a potentially responsible party, we do not know                            
    the portion of the clean up costs that it will be required to pay.                              
The company knows what costs would be incurred in the actual clean up of                            
    the site.                                          
The company needs to determine which internal costs should be included in the                            
    cost of the clean up. For example, if it uses its laborers for site clean up activities,                            
    the direct cost of labor can become a part of the overall cost of cleanup.                            
The company must guess whether lawsuits will be filed against the company related                          
    to the hazardous waste site.                                      
    The company must estimate the probability of loss or settlement in the lawsuit and                          
    the amount of the damages to be paid                                    
c. Select ONLY three of the following industries you consider likely to face significant environmental                          
    oil producers                                        
    tobacco producers                                        
    clothing retailers                                        
    chemical manufacturers                                      
    accounting firms                                        
    legal practices                                        
Problem 3-7 (page 214, Appendix A47)                                        
b.   is the discount rate for year 11.                                    
Question 4-10                                            
Exercise 4-9                                            
(1)   years                                          
(2)   years                                          
(3)   years                                          
Problem 4-2
