Chapter 6:  Vader Collectibles, Inc. Part 2 Graded Homework Assignment
Spring 2017
 
When Darth Vader isn’t too busy ridding the galaxy of rebel scum, he enjoys running his own business, Vader Collectibles, Inc. Vader Collectibles sells premium-quality model Death Stars. The model Death Stars include miniature superlasers with enough power to destroy the four Rebel Trooper action figures that are included with purchase.
 
After making Vader Collectibles, Inc. profitable by using the awesome power of managerial accounting, Darth Vader has decided to apply for a bank loan in order to obtain funds to expand the business.
