    Missing information in question:

    Otis Thorpe Corporation has 10,000 shares of $100 par value, 8% preferred stock and 50,000 shares of $10 par value common stock outstanding at December 31, 2014.

    The journal entry is as follows:

    8% Preferred Stock A/c Dr. $400,000

    To Common Stock A/c $280,000

    To Paid in Capital in excess of par value $120,000

    (Being 4,000 shares of Preferred stock has been converted in to Common Stock)

    Workings:

    Preferred Stock = 4,000 shares * $100

    = $400,000

    Common stock = 4,000 * 7 shares * $10

    = $280,000
