# Mountain view resorts purchased equipment at the beginning of 2021 for \$46,000. residual value at the end of an estimated four-year service life is expected to be \$6,900. the machine operated for 1,600 hours in the first year and the company expects the machine to operate for a total of 10,000 hours over its four-year life. calculate depreciation expense for 2021, using each of the following depreciation methods: (1) straight-line, (2) double-declining-balance, and (3) activity-based.

Answerthe maximum price that a buyer is willing to pay for a good;

answer; /// i do believe that the above is (true)

Straight line depreciation expense = \$9,775

Double declining method = \$23,000

unit of production method = \$6,256

Explanation:

Depreciation expense is used to expense the cost of asset.

Depreciation expense using the straight line depreciation method = (cost of the equipment - Salvage value) / useful life

(\$46,000 - \$6,900) / 4 = \$9,775

The depreciation expense in 2021 is \$9,775.

Depreciation expense using the double declining method = acceleration factor × net book value

Acceleration factor = 2×(1/useful life)

2(1/4) = 0.5

= 0.5 × \$46, 000 = \$23,000

Depreciation expense using the double declining method = \$23,000

Depreciation expense using the unit of production method =Total use in a given period × [( Cost - Salvage value)/ total productive capacity]

(\$46,000 - \$6,900) /10,000 = \$3.91 × 1600 =\$6,256

Depreciation expense using the unit of production method = \$6,256

I hope my answer helps you.
