Revision of depreciationA truck with a cost of $82,000 has an estimated residual value of$16,000, has an estimated useful life of 12 years, and is depreciated by the straight-line method, (a) Determine the amount of the annual depreciation. (b) Determine the book value at the end of the seventh year of use. (c) Assuming that at the start of the eighth year the remaining life is estimated to be six years and the residual value is estimated to be $12,000, determine the depreciation expense for each of the remaining six years. (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 salvage value is shown as below: Depreciation cost = (Cost of the asset-residual value)Estimated useful life of the asset To determine: the amount of annual depreciation Explanation Determine the amount of annual depreciation. Cost of the truck =$82,000

Estimated residual Value =\$16,000

Estimated Useful life =12 years

AnnualDepreciation = (Cost of the asset-residual value)Estimated useful life of the asset</
