A truck costing USD 45,000 and having an estimated salvage value of USD 4,500 and an original life of five years is exchanged for a new truck. The cash price of the new truck is USD 57,000, and a trade-in allowance of USD 22,500 is received. The old truck has been depreciated for three years using the straight-line method. The new truck would be recorded at: 1. Take the annual depreciation (8,100 via excel) * 3 (years truck has been depreciated) = 24,300. 2. Subtract accumulated depreciated from original cost to get current value of truck 3. 3. Find the gain on the exchange by subtracting the current value of the truck
