Question: January 5, 2014, for \$116,600. The equipment was expected to have a useful life of three years, or 20,000 operating hours, and a residual value of \$6,600. The equipment was used for 8,700 hours during 2014, 7,380 hours in 2015, and 3,920 hours in 2016. Required: 1. Determine the amount of depreciation expense for the years ended December 31, 2014, 2015, and 2016 by (a) the straight-line method, (b) the double-declining-balance method Answer: a) Under straight line method, Depreciation = (Purchase price - Salvage value) / Useful life. = (\$116,600 - \$6,600) / 3 = \$36,666.66 per year. So, depreciation for December 31, 2014 = December 31, 2015 = December 31, 2016 = \$36,666.66 per year. b) Depreciation under double declining balance method is calculated by applying double the rate under straight line method to the balance remaining in the asset account at the beginning of each year. The depreciation stops when book value = estimated salvage value. Depreciation = 2 x Straight line depreciation rate x Book value at beginning of each year. Straight line rate = 1 / 3 = 33.33% So, Double declining rate = 33.33 x 2 = 66.66%

What is the relevant sales level to consider when deciding whether to introduce Crunch Stuf n’ Stars? Answer: The relevant Sales level is the Sales actually generated by the new product of its own, that is without shift of old customers to new product. This will be \$25 million x (1 - 0.20) = \$20 million....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
