Concept #1: Introduction to Depreciation

Concept #2: Straight Line Depreciation

Example #1: Straight Line Method Through Life of Asset

Practice: ABC Company purchased a new machine on January 1, Year 1 for $44,000. The company expects the machine to last ten years. The company thinks it could sell the scrap metal from the machine for $4,000 at the end of its useful life. If the company uses the straight-line method for depreciation, what will be the net book value of the machine on December 31, Year 4?

Practice: DBQ Company purchased a machine on January 1, Year 1 for $60,000. The company estimated a five year useful life and $8,000 residual value. If the company uses the straight-line method for depreciation, what will be the amount of accumulated depreciation on December 31, Year 2?
