Capital Lease

 

The City of Jamestown has agreed to acquire a new city maintenance building under a capital lease agreement. At the inception of the lease, a payment of $100,000 is to be made; nine annual lease payments, each in the amount of $100,000, are to be made at the end of the year after the inception of the lease. The total amount to be paid under this lease, therefore, is $1,000,000. The town could borrow this amount for nine years at the annual rate of 8%; therefore, the present value of the lease at inception, including the initial lease payment, is $724,689. Assume that the fair market value of the building at the inception of the lease is $750,000.

Required: Show the entry that should be made in a capital projects fund at the inception of the lease after the initial payment has been made. Show the entry that would be made at the inception of the lease in the governmental activities journal. Show the entry that would be made in the debt service fund and governmental activities journal to record the second lease payment. Submit your responses to the requirements above in a 2 page document in MS Word. Label each question clearly, include introduction, conclusion and critical analysis!!! APA format. For computations, please include them in a table.  Include 2 references and

Question 10. 10. (TCO 8) Briefly describe which elements of a class are named using Camel case rules, and what are the best practices regarding the naming of these elements. (Points : 18)

     Camel case  is a term which refers to the practice of writing compound words having one or more internal uppercase letters. The methods of a class are named using camel casing because these includes multiple words.

The best practices include:

When there are multiple words, the first word should start from small letter where as other words should start from capital letter.

For example:

int getAge();

void getElementById();

are the examples of camel case.

     

 

Question 11. 11. (TCO 2) Explain the terms Encapsulation and Data/Information Hiding in object-oriented programming. How do they differ? (Points : 18)

          Encapsulation refers to the bundling of data with the methods that operate on that data. Often that definition is misconstrued to mean that the data is somehow hidden. you can have encapsulated data that is not hidden at all.

Example:

class Person {

public String name;

}

 

Variable ‘name’ is encapsulated but not hidden.

 

 

Information hiding is the principle that users of a software component (such as a class) need to know

only the essential details of how to initialize and access the component, and do not need to know the details of the implementation.

Example:

class Person {

private String name;

pubic void setName(String newname) {

name = newname;

}

}

 

—————————————————————————–   

 

Question 12. 12. (TCO 2) Given the following program description,

 

–      identify the required classes/objects necessary to achieve the program requirements;

 

–      briefly describe any relationships that might exist between your classes; and

 

–      briefly describe the overall hierarchy of your proposed classes.

 

Program Description – You have been asked to create a program designed to take coffee orders in a coffee shop. The program must be able to take an order, assign a unique ID to the order, add any number of drinks to the order and calculate the total bill. (Points : 18)

     

     

 

Question 13. 13. (TCO 7) Briefly describe what an Interface is and how it can be used in an object-oriented program. Provide example pseudocode showing how an ICountry Interface might be constructed.  (Points : 18)

An interface is a group of related methods with empty bodies. An interface contains only the signatures of methods, properties, events or indexers. A class or struct that implements the interface must implement the members of the interface that are specified in the interface definition

A bicycle’s behavior, if specified as an interface, might appear as follows:

interface Bicycle {

 

    //  wheel revolutions per minute

    void changeCadence(int newValue);

 

    void changeGear(int newValue);

 

    void speedUp(int increment);

 

    void applyBrakes(int decrement);

}

An ICountry Interface might be constructed using keyword interface. E.g

Interface iCountry{

}   

 

Question 1. 1.

(TCO 2) Keeping in mind all object-oriented programming best practices, create a class for a Chair, with the following specifications:

 

1)     Specify two data members

 

2)     Default Constructor

 

3)     Overloaded Constructor which takes both data member values as input.

 

4)     Generate a unique identification number for each object instantiated from this class.  Use a static data member to keep track of the identification number last assigned to an object so that duplications will not occur. Code the necessary portion of the class definition so as to support this requirement.

public class Chair {
    int numLegs ;
    String make ;
    int id ;
    static int count = 0;
    public Chair() {
        id = count ;
        count ++;
    }

    public Chair( int numLegs, String make) {
        this . numLegs = numLegs;
        this . make = make;
         id = count ;
        count ++;
    }

}

 

5)     Show a statement which instantiates an object of this class using the overloaded constructor.

 

You do not need to provide any accessor/mutator methods or other methods.

 

(Points : 22)

     

     Chair chair = new Chair(4,”xyz”);

 

 

Question 2. 2. (TCO 3) How does the “is-a” relationship relate to inheritance? Give an example of such a relationship.  (Points : 18)

     

      Allowing a class to contain object instances in other classes so they can be used to perform actions relate d to

the class (an “has a” relationship ) i.e., a person has the ability to walk.

 

 

Question 3. 3. (TCO 4) Consider the class Employee. Given your knowledge of some common components of employees

 

–       show a class hierarchy in which the class Employee inherits from other classes, which, in turn, can also be inherited from yet other classes; 

Class Person

Class  BoardOfDirectors : public Person

Class employee : public Person

 

–       discuss inheritance from class Employee for other closely related derived classes; and

Class FullTime : public Employee

Class PartTime : public Employee

 

–       discuss the common components of class Employee. (Points : 18)

     

String SSN; //ssn of employee

String firstname;         //first name of employee

String lastname;          //last name of employee

String department;      //department of employee

Date DOJ;                   //date of joining

Double payrate;           //pay rate of employee

The above are some components of employee class
