Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Definition of Fair Value

Fair value can be defined as the value assigned to any goods or service, considering the demand, supply, and competitive factors. Such value is different from that of market value.

Step 2: Reporting investment on the balance sheet

The investment made in the bonds will be reported on the asset side as available for sale securities. It will be reported as equal to $51,200.

The loss occurring due to a decrease in the value of the bond will be reported in the other comprehensive income and will be adjusted against the net income.
