ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS 1. The two main characteristics of intangible assets are: (a) they lack physical substance. (b) they are not a financial instrument. 2. If intangibles are acquired for stock, the cost of the intangible is the fair value of the consideration given or the fair value of the consideration received, whichever is more clearly evident. 3.

    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.
