E10-7 Brainiac Company purchased a delivery truck for $30,000

Customer Question

E10-7

Brainiac Company purchased a delivery truck for $30,000 on January 1, 2008. The truck has an expected salvage value of $2,000, and is expected to be driven 100,000 miles over its estimated useful life of 8 years. Actual miles driven were 15,000 in 2008 and 12,000 in 2009.


Compute depreciation expense for 2008 and 2009 using (1) the straight-line method, (2) the units-of-activity method, and (3) the double-declining balance method. (For part (2), round cost per mile to 2 decimal places. Round final answers to 0 decimal places, e.g. 125.)

2008 2009
Straight-line $ $
Units-of-Activity $ $
Double-declining Balance $ $


Assume that Brainiac uses the straight-line method. (1) Prepare the journal entry to record 2008 depreciation. (2) Show how the truck would be reported in the December 31, 2008, balance sheet. (Enter all amounts as positive amounts and subtract where necessary.)

P10-4A
At the beginning of 2006, Lehman Company acquired equipment costing $90,000. It was estimated that this equipment would have a useful life of 6 years and a residual value of $9,000 at that time. The straight-line method of depreciation was considered the most appropriate to use with this type of equipment. Depreciation is to be recorded at the end of each year.
During 2008 (the third year of the equipment's life), the company's engineers reconsidered their expectations, and estimated that the equipment's useful life would probably be 7 years (in total) instead of 6 years. The estimated residual value was not changed at that time. However, during 2011 the estimated residual value was reduced to $5,000.

Instructions

Indicate how much depreciation expense should be recorded each year for this equipment, by completing the following table.
