Explanation:

The journal entry is shown below:

Bond interest expense \$14,200

To Discount on bond payable \$14,000

To Cash \$200

(Being the first interest payment is made for cash is recorded)

The computation is shown below:

= \$400,000 * 7% * 6 months : 12 months

= \$14,000

The discount on bond payable is

= \$400,000 - \$396,000

= \$4,000

This \$4,000 would be charged for 10 years So for one year it is 200 in case of semi annual basis

As we debited the interest expense as it increased the expenses and at the same time it also decrease the cash balance so it would be credited along with it the discount on bond payable is credited
