Problem 4

You are a financial analyst for your company and have been asked to determine the impact of various depreciation methods on the company’s financial statements. Your analysis is based on a machine costing $110,000 with an estimated useful life of 12 years and an estimated residual value of $8,000. The machine also has an estimated useful life in output of 220,000 units. Actual output was 21,000 units in year 1 and 15,000 units in year 2.
