Expert Solution

1. (a)

To determine

Straight-line Depreciation: Under the straight-line method of depreciation, the same amount of depreciation is allocated every year over the estimated useful life of an asset. The formula to calculate the depreciation cost of the asset using the residual value is shown as below:

Depreciation = (Cost of the assetResidual value)Estimated useful life of the asset

To determine: the annual depreciation expense, accumulated depreciation, and the book value for each of the estimated five years of use by the straight-line method.

### Explanation of Solution

Determine the annual depreciation expense, accumulated depreciation, and the book value by straight-line method.

 Year Depreciation Expense (1) Accumulated Depreciation, End of Year Book Value, End of Year Year 1 $142,000$142,000 $658,000 Year 2$142,000 $284,000$516,000 Year 3 $142,000$426,000 $374,000 Year 4$142,000 $568,000$232,000 Year 5 $142,000$710,000 $90,000 Table (1) Working notes: Cost of the equipment=$800,000
