## Step 1: Definition of bonds payable issue at a discount

Bond issued at discount is the situation when the bond issued by the company less than the face value of the bond.

## Step 2: Issue the bonds payable

1. In this case, the bond is issued at a discount because the market interest rate of the bonds payable is greater than the stated bond rate. Hence, the bonds payable is issued at a discount.
2. In this case, the bonds are issued at a premium because the stated interest rate is greater than the market interest.
3. In this case, the bonds are issued at face value because the market interest rate and the stated interest rate are the same. Hence the bonds payable is issued at face value.
4. In this case, the bonds payable is issued at a discount because the stated interest rate is less than the market interest rate. Hence, the bonds payable is issued at a discount. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
