Machine B:  The recorded cost of this machine was $180,000.  Evers estimates that the useful life of the machine is 4 yeas with a $10,000 salvage value remaining at the end of that time period.

a.  Evers uses the straight-line method of depreciation

b.  Evers uses the declining-balance method.  The rate used is twice the straight-line rate.

c.  Evers uses the units-of-activity method and estimates that the useful life of the machine is 125,000 units.  Actual usage is as follows 2105, 45,000 units; 2016, 35,000 units; 2017, 25,000 units; 2018, 20,000 units.
