    Your question isn't clear.

    Calculate what?

    Do you need to calculate the portion of insurance that is a current expense for the year 2011 and the portion that is a prepaid expense or prepaid asset?

    4000/2 = 2000. = 1 year expense
    2000./12 = monthly expense for 1 year
    Jan 2011 - Mar 31, 2011 = 3 month x monthly amount

    Above is without knowing what you need to calculate.
