Cost = \$42,000

Estimated life = 5 years (or) 200,000 hours

Salvage hours = \$2,000

Company A: Straight-line depreciation

Depreciation expense every year = (Cost – Salvage value)/Estimated life

( (\$42,000 - \$2,000)/5 years

( \$8,000 per year

Therefore, Depreciation expense for:

2008:   Book Value=42000-8400=33600

2009:   Book Value=33600-8400=25200

2010:   Book Value=25200-8400=16800

Company-B: Double-declining balance method

Depreciation expense = Beginning of the year balance x Double-declining rate

Double declining rate = Straight line rate x 2 = 20% (for 5 years life) x 2 = 40%

2008: \$42,000 x 40% ( \$16,800  Book Value=42000-16800=\$25200

2009: (\$25200 x 40% ( \$10,080   Book Value=25200-10080=\$15120

2010: (\$15120 x 40% ( \$6,048  Book value=15120-6048=\$9072

Company C: Units of production method

Depreciation expense per hour = (\$42,000 - \$2,000)/200,000 hours ( \$0.20 per hour

Depreciation expense for:

2008: 50,000 hours x \$0.21 per hour ( \$10,500  Book Value=42000-10500=\$31500

2009: 55,000 hours x \$0.21per hour ( \$11,550  Book Value=31500-11550=\$19950

2010: 40,000 hours x \$0.21 per hour ( \$8,400  Book Value=19950-8400=\$11550
