(a)
Compute the amount of depreciation for each Years 1 through 3 using the straightline
depreciation method.
(b)
Compute the amount of depreciation for each Years 1 through 3 using the sumofyears digits
depreciation method.
The sum of 1 through 12 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12 =
1+12 + 2+11 + 3+10 + 4+9 + 5+8 + 6+7 =
(1+12) + (2+11) + (3+10) + (4+9) + (5+8) + (6+7) =
(13) + (13) + (13) + (13) + (13) + (13) =
13 X (12/2) =
13 X 6 = 78
the sum of the first year and the last year multiplied by one half of the total number of years.
Hint:
Since "SumofYearsDigits" title contains an "S", use salvage value to compute periodic
depreciation expense.

(c)
Compute the amount of depreciation for each Years 1 through 3 using the doubledeclining balance
method. (In performing your calculations, round constant percentage to the nearest onehundredth of a
point and round answers to the nearest dollar.)
Hint:
Since "DoubleDeclining Balance Method" title does not contain an "S", do not use salvage value
to compute periodic depreciation expense. However, ensure that book value does not violate
salvage value.
