Exercise 10-4 Straight-line amortization of bond premium L.O. P3
Prairie Dunes Co. issues bonds dated January 1, 2011, with a par value of \$890,000. The bonds’ annual contract rate is 12%, and interest is paid semiannually on June 30 and December 31. The bonds mature in three years. The annual market rate at the date of issuance is 10%, and the bonds are sold for \$935,160.

2. How much total bond interest expense will be recognized over the life of these bonds? (Round your answer to the nearest dollar amount. Omit the "\$" sign in your response.)

Total bond interest expense \$

3. Prepare an amortization table for these bonds; use the straight-line method to amortize the premium.(Make sure that the unamortized premium is adjusted to "0" and the carrying value equals to face value of the bond in the last period.

A company will begin stocking remote control devices. Expected monthly demand is 820 units. The controllers can be purchased from either supplier A or supplier B. Their price lists are as follows:

SUPPLIER A SUPPLIER B
Quantity Unit Price Quantity Unit Price
1–199 \$14.00 1–149 \$14.10
200–499 13.80 150–349 13.90
500 + 15.2 350 + 13.70
________________________________________

Ordering cost is \$47 and annual holding cost is 32 percent of unit price per unit.

a-1. Which supplier should be used?

Supplier B
Supplier A

a-2. What order quantity is optimal if the intent is to minimize total annual costs?

200-499
500+
1 - 149
1 - 199
150 - 349
350+

Problem 13-19

Given this information:
Expected demand during lead time = 310 units
Standard deviation of lead time demand = 30 units
Use Table.

Determine each of the following, assuming that lead time demand is distributed normally:

a. The ROP that will provide a risk of stockout of 1 percent during lead time. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

ROP units

b. The safety stock needed to attain a 1 percent risk of stockout during lead time. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

Safety stock units

c-1. Would a stockout risk of 2 percent require more or less safety stock than a 1 percent risk?

Less
More

c-2. Would the ROP be larger, smaller, or unaffected if the acceptable risk were 2 percent instead of 1 percent?

Larger
Smaller
Unaffected

Problem 13-20

Given this information:
Standard deviation of lead time demand = 70 pounds (Assume normality.)
Acceptable stockout risk during lead time = 4 percent
Use Table.

a. What amount of safety stock is appropriate? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

Safety stock units

b. When should this item be reordered? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

ROP units

c. What risk of stockout would result from a decision not to have any safety stock? (Omit the "%" sign in your response.)

Stockout risk %
