Mbappe Airways replaces the seats in one of its airplanes. The new seats have a price of \$970,000. The old seats have an original cost of \$530,000 and accumulated depreciation of \$478,000. Mbappe gave the old seats and \$925,000 cash for the new seats. What is the effect of the entry to record the replacement on total assets?

• No effect

• Increase of \$97,000

• Increase of 45,000

• Decrease of \$7,000

• Decrease of \$52,000

Cost of old seats = \$530,000

Accumulated depreciation = \$478,000

Book value of old seats = Cost of old seats - Accumulated depreciation

= 530,000 - 478,000

= \$52,000

Cash paid for new assets = \$925,000

Cost of new seats = \$970,000

Decrease in assets = Book value of old seats + Cash paid for new assets - Cost of new seats

= 52,000 + 925,000 - 970,0000

= \$7,000
