Customer Question
Depreciation: For tax purposes...
Depreciation: For tax purposes, business frequently depreciates equipment. Two methods of depreciation are straight line depreciation and sum of the year’s digits. Suppose that a college student buys a \$3000 computer to start a business that provides Internet services. This student estimates the life of the computer at 4 years, after which its value will be \$200. The difference between \$3000 and \$200, or \$2800, may be deducted from the student’s taxable income over a 4 year period. In straight line depreciation, equal portion of \$2800 are deducted each year over the 4 year period. The sum of the year’s digits method calculates depreciation differently. For a computer having a useful life of 4 years, the sum of the years is computed by
1+2+3+4=10
With this method, 4/10 of \$2800 is deducted the first year, 3/10 the second year, and so on until 1/10 is deducted the fourth year. Both depreciation methods yield a total deduction of \$2800 over the 4 years.

(a) Find and arithmetic sequence that gives the amount depreciated each year by each method.
(b) Write a series whose sum is the amount depreciated over 4 years by each method.
