Hello Customer,

What is the firm's depreciation expense for the year ended De. 31, 2009?
\$22,000 cost * 40% (twice straight-line rate) =\$8800 first year depreciation.
D) \$8800

What is the accumulated depreciation for this asset on Dec. 31st, 2010?
\$22,000-\$8800 depreciation for 2009=\$13,200 book value x 40% = \$5280 depreciation for 2010.
B) \$5280

What is the firm's gain or loss if the machinery is sold for \$11000 on Dec. 31, 2010
\$22,000-\$8800-\$5280=\$7920 book value on 12/31/10. \$11,000 sales proceeds-\$7920 book value=\$3080 gain.
B) Gain fo \$3080
