**Damon**, Monday, April 19, 2010 at 7:18pmThis is not straight line depreciation but a constant percentage depreciation per month.

let value after a month be d times value the month before. (like 0.97 or something)

Then value after n months = original value * d^n

for example if I buy a $500 appliance

and d = .97 per month

then after 2 years

value = 500(.97)^24

= 500(.481)

= $ 241
