Calculate the depreciation expense for each equipment item for the year ended December 31, 2014, using the nearest whole month method.

1) Deprecaition expense for 2014= (Original cost-Residual value)/Estimated useful life

= (\$50000-12000)/5= \$7600

2) Depreciation expense per unit= (Original cost-Residual value)/Estimated units produced

= (\$60000-8000)/50000= \$1.04

Depreciation expense for 2014= Depreciation expense per unit*Units produced in 2014

= \$1.04*5000= \$5200

3) Depreciation rate= 100/10*2= 20%

Depreciation expense for 2014= \$120000*20%*7/12

= \$14000

June 12 to Dec 31= 7 months

4) Depreciation expense for 2014= (Original cost-Residual value)/Estimated useful life

= (\$90000-10000)/8*8/12

= \$6667

May 3 to Dec 31= 8 months
