• Scenario 5: Young Corporation issued 2,000 shares of $25 par value common stock and 300
shares of 13%, $50 par value preferred stock for cash at par value. This scenario is very similar
to Scenario 4 except that the company is now selling both common and preferred stock, and the
sales are both at par value. You may compose two separate entries or one combined entry to
reflect the receipt of cash in exchange for the stock sold in the scenario. Use the following
account titles for the transactions: Cash, Accounts Payable, Notes Payable, Interest Payable,
Unearned Ticket Revenue, Ticket Revenue, Supplies Expense, Discount, and Interest Expense.
create the journal entries that would be necessary to record the information. Any of the seven
accounts named in the assignment may be used to compose the required journal entries. As
mentioned earlier, remember that each journal entry requires at least one debit and at least one
credit, and that the entries should list the debit(s) first, followed by the credit(s).

an increase on three occasions (quarterly on 6/30/09, 9/30/09, and finally on 12/31/09). Also,
remember to calculate the quarterly interest amount properly.)

• Scenario 2: Midwest University sells 5,000 season baseball tickets at $25 each for its five-game
home schedule. Record the entries for the sale of the tickets and the entry after its first home
game. (The wording on this scenario is meant to describe a situation in which fans pay for a $25
“season” ticket that allows them admission to all five future games.)

$10,000 in supplies on credit. The terms are 2/10, net 30. They make the payment on May 10, to
take advantage of the discount. Record the entry for the payment on 5/10. (This scenario requires
just one entry to record the payment for supplies on May 10th; the trick is to make sure that you
record the correct amount of payment in light of the discount being offered.)
