E9-17 Computing depreciation—three methods [10–15 min]

Papa’s Fried Chicken bought equipment on January 2, 2012, for $39,000. The equipment
was expected to remain in service for four years and to perform 11,000 fry jobs.
At the end of the equipment’s useful life, Papa’s estimates that its residual value will be
$6,000. The equipment performed 1,100 jobs the first year, 3,300 the second year,
4,400 the third, and 2,200 the fourth year.


1. Prepare a schedule of depreciation expense per year for the equipment under the
three depreciation methods. After two years under double-declining-balance
depreciation, the company switched to the straight-line method. Show your
computations. Note: Three depreciation schedules must be prepared.

2. Which method tracks the wear and tear on the equipment most closely?
