=$7000  
Initial value of new tractor  
Fair Value of tractor given  $ 24,000  
Add: Cash Paid  $ 30,000  
Initial value of new tractor  $ 54,000  
[The following information applies to the questions displayed below.]
Case A. Kapono Farms exchanged an old tractor for a newer model. The old tractor had a book value of $17,000 (original cost of $38,000 less accumulated depreciation of $21,000) and a fair value of $10,000. Kapono paid $30,000 cash to complete the exchange. The exchange has commercial substance.
Case B. Kapono Farms exchanged 100 acres of farmland for similar land. The farmland given had a book value of $550,000 and a fair value of $800,000. Kapono paid $60,000 cash to complete the exchange. The exchange has commercial substance.
Assume the fair value of the old tractor is $24,000 instead of $10,000. What is the amount of gain or loss that Kapono would recognize on the exchange? What is the initial value of the new tractor?
