Expert's answer
current assets(net) $130,000 $125,000
Property, Plant, equip(Net) 600,000 750,000
Liabilities 150,000 175,000
Lake would record goodwill of
B. $250,000

Goodwill is calculated as the difference of the price for buying the company and its fair value of net assets (assets minus liabilities).
Goodwill = 950,000 - (750,000 + 125,000 - 175,000) =250,000
