Answer #1

Ms. Marianne Randal pays 10,000 in exchange for 1,500 common stock.

The general rule is Debit what comes in and credit what goes out

Therefore debit cash 10,000

and 1,500 common stock is exchanged for this 10,000 cash.

The value of stock is \$5.

That means for 1500 common stock = 1,500*5 = 7,500

Therefore, credit common stock or capital stock with 7500 and the excess amount that is 10,000 - 7500 = 2,500.

it should be credited to additional paid in capital.

The answer is:

Cash debit \$10,000 and Capital stock credit \$7500; Additional paid in capital \$2,500.
