On June 1, Year One, Braxton Company issues a bond, it receives its first interest on Aug.1, only two months, 750 time 2=1500

The 3,000 is because the dated date is when the interest is starting (prior because its accruing) so $750 x months from feb to june, the interest expense is 7/12 x 750

The interest rate is confusing, so you calculate from the dated date (Feb 1) to issue date (June 1) and multiple by $750 because the dated date is given. If it wasn't you would be correct.
