#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Book value = purchase price - accumulated depreciation.

 Year 1 2 3 4 Depreciation rate 14.29% 24.49% 17.49% 12.49% Depreciation amount (depreictaion rate*\$96,171) 13,742.84 23,552.28 16,820.31 12,011.76

Accumulated depreciation = 13742.84+23552.28+16820.31+12011.76

= \$66,127.18

Thus book value = 96171-66127.18 = \$30,043.82

Here selling price of today<book value now. Thus,

After tax salvage value = selling price + tax rate*(book value - selling price)

= 4624 + 35%*(30043.82-4624)

= \$13,520.94

=
