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

Determine the amount of depreciation for the first year.

Cost of the refrigerator= \$85,000

Estimated Useful Life =10 years

Depreciation = (

(b)

To determine

Determine the amount of depreciation for each of the first two years by the double-declining-balance method.
