(DEPRECIATION SCHEDULE A)
A. A \$1200 postage printing system depreciated using the straight-line method over 4-years. In your depreciation schedule, give the following information for each year:

1.The year's depreciation
2.The accumulated depreciation
3.The year's end-of-book value

I'm trying to figure out the same problem. We'll just have to read the book

\$1200/4= \$300

The item depreciates \$300 per year, leaving an end-of-book value of \$0 since there is no scrap or salvage value. The accumulated value is \$300 added each year. For example, \$300 depreciation the first year, making the end-of-year book value for the first year \$900. There is no accumulated depreciation in the first year other than the first \$300.
The second year depreciates another \$300, which adds another \$300 to the accumulated depreciation totaling \$600, making the end-of-year book value for the second year \$600.
The third year, it depreciates another \$300, accumulating the depreciation to \$900, thus making the end-of-year book value for this year \$300. I am sure you can figure out the fourth year on your own. It is very simple.
