the snowplow depreciable amount will be $4,000 because there is no salvage value.

Next the digits in the years of the asset's useful life are summed 1+2+3+4+5+6=21

in the 1st year, (6/21)*4000= 1142.86 will be debited to Depreciation Expense and $1142.86 will be credited to Accumulated Depreciation

in second year=(5/21)*4000=952.3

third year=(4/21)*4000=761.9

fourth=(3/21)*4000=571.43

fifth=(2/21)*4000=380.95

sixth=(1/21)*4000=$190.48 which is the sixth year's depreciation
