Answer #1

Straight line depreciation = (Cost - Salvage Value) / Useful life

= ($198000 - $20000) / 5=

= $35600 each year

Sum of years digit method depreciation = (Cost - Salvage Value) * Remaining useful life/ (Sum of years' digit)

For 2016 = ($198000 - $20000) * 5/(5+4+3+2+1)

= $178000 * 5/15

= $59333

For 2017 = ($198000 - $20000) * 4/(5+4+3+2+1)

= $178000 * 4/15

= $47467

Double declining method depreciation = 2*Straight line rate* Book value at beginning of year

For 2016 = 2*(100%/5) * $198000

= $79200

For 2017 = 2*20%*($198000-$79200)

= $47520

Activity method depreciation = (Cost - Salvage Value) * Activity level/ Total Activity

Based on hours:

For 2016 = ($198000-$20000) * 1800/10000 = $32040

For 2017 = ($198000 - $20000)*1500/10000 = $26700

Based on unist of output:

For 2016 = ($198000-$20000) * 44000/200000 = $39160

For 2017 = ($198000 - $20000)*35000/200000 = $31150

The book values under each of the method are calculated below:

Straight-line method

2016 : $198000 - $35600 = $162400

2017: $162400 - $35600 = $126800

Sum-of-the-years'-digits method

2016: $198000 - $47467 = 150533

2017 $150533 - 59333 = 91200

Double-declining-balance method

2016 $198000 -79200 = 118800

2017 $118800 - 47520 = 71280

Activity method based on hours worked

2016 $198000 - 32040 = $165960

2017 $165960 - $26700 = 139260

Activity method based on units of output

2016: $198000 - 39160 = $158840

2017 $158840 - $31150 = 127690
