1. What is a basic premise of the acquisition method regarding accounting for a noncontrolling interest? a. Consolidated financial statements should be primarily for the benefit of the parent company’s stockholders. b. Consolidated financial statements should be produced only if both the parent and the subsidiary are in the same basic industry. c. A subsidiary is an indivisible part of a business combination and should be included in its entirety regardless of the degree of ownership. d. Consolidated financial statements should not report a noncontrolling interest balance because these outside owners do not hold stock in the parent company. 4. On January 1, 2012, Brendan, Inc., reports net assets of $760,000 although equipment (with a four-year life) having a book value of $440,000 is worth $500,000 and an unrecorded patent is valued at $45,000. Hope Corporation pays $692,000 on that date for an 80 percent ownership in Brendan. If the patent is to be written off over a 10-year period, at what amount should it be reported on consolidated statements at December 31, 2013?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
