# Award Makers bought a computerized engraving machine for $33,800. It is expected to have a 5-year useful life and a trade-in value of$2,700. Prepare a depreciation schedule for the first three years by using the 150% declining-balance method for the machine.Award Makers150% Declining-Balance Depreciation Schedule Computerized Engraving Machine End of Beginning Depreciation Depreciation Accumulated Ending Year Book Value Rate for the Year Depreciation Book Value 1 2 3

To determine

To calculate: The depreciation schedule for Award Maker’s machine using 150% declining balance method when the total cost of machine is $33,800. Explanation Given Information: The total cost of machine is$33,800 and expected to have useful life of 5 years. The trade-in value of machine is $2,700. Formula used: The steps to prepare depreciation schedule by the declining balance method are as follows: Step 1: Calculate the declining balance rate by the below formula Decliningbalance rate=1Useful life×Multiple Step 2: Calculate the depreciation for each year by multiplying beginning book value by declining balance rate. Step 3: Calculate the ending book value by subtracting depreciation of the year from the beginning book value. Step 3: The depreciation is complete when the ending book value equals the salvage value. Step 4: Prepare the depreciation schedule in form of chart. Calculation: Consider the total cost of machine is$33,800. The trade-in value of machine is $2,700 and expected to have useful life of 5 years. The declining-balance rate is: Decliningbalance rate=1Useful life×Multiple Now, using the above formula, the declining-balance rate is: Decliningbalance rate=15×150%=15×1.5=0.3 The depreciation for the year is: The depreciation for the year=Beginning book value×Decliningbalance rate Now, using the above formula, the depreciation for 1st year is: The depreciation for year 1=33,800×0.3=$10,140

The ending book value is:

Ending book value=Beginning book valueDepreciation for year 1

Now, using the above formula, the ending book value for 1st year is:

Ending book value=33,80010,140=\$23,660

Now, using the above formula, the depreciation for 2nd year is:

The depreciation for year 2=23,660×0
