    a. how would I show the interest on a $2,000,10%,1-year note receivable would be?

    Interest = PRT = 2,000X10%X1 = $200

    b.The maturity value of a $15,000, 12%,3-month note receivable ?

    Maturity value = face value + interest
    Interest = 15,000X12%X3/12 = 450
    Maturity Value = 15,000+450=15,450

    c. If Lj company acquires land for $36,000 cash. Additional costs are as follows:
    Removal of shed $ 300
    Filling and grading 1,500
    Salvage value of lumber of shed 120
    Broker commission 1,130
    Paving of parking lot 10,000
    Closing cost 560
    What is the acquisition cost of the land?

    The cost of land is the purchase cost and all expenses incurred in making the lad ready for use. The cost of land is
    Cost 36,000
    Removal of shed $ 300
    Filling and grading 1,500
    Salvage value of lumber of shed -120
    Broker commission 1,130
    Closing cost 560

    Salvage value of lumber is an inflow and so is negative. Paving for parking lot is land improvements

    d. My truck was purchased for $15,000 and it was estimated to have a $3,000 salvage value at the end of its useful life. Monthly depreciation expense of $125 was recorded using the straight-line method. What is the annual depreciation rate

    Monthly Depreciation = 125
    Annual Depreciation = 125X12=1,500
    The depreciable base = 15,000-3,000=12,000
    Annual rate = 1,500/12,000=12.5%

    e. Alvin plant asset cost $32,000 and is estimated to have a $4,000 salvage value at the end of its 8-year useful life. The annual depreciation expense recorded for the third year using the double-declining-balance method would it be $4500?
