    To record amortization of goodwill

    Calculation of goodwill:

    Consideration exchanged 1,580,000

    Less: Fair value of net identifiable assets 1,350,000

    Goodwill acquired 230,000

    The cost of goodwill is not amortized.

    For Patent Ammortization = 60,200/7 = 8600 / 2 = 4300

    For Franchise Ammortization = 154,800/9 = 17200 / 12 = 1433.33 * 3 = 4300

    Account Title Dr Cr

    Amortization expense 4300

    Patent 4300

    Amortization expense 4300

    Franchise 4300

    2)

    Patent = $60,200 - 4,300 = $55,900

    Franchise = $154,800 - 4,300 = $150,500

    Balance Sheet

    Goodwill 230,000
