1. What percent of the original cost of Krispy Kreme's property, plant, and equipment remains to be depreciated as of February 2, 2003, and February 3, 2002? Assume these assets have no salvage value.

2. Over what length(s) of time is Krispy Kreme amortizing its intangible assets?

3. What is the change in total property and equipment (before accumulated depreciation) for the year ended February 2, 2003? What is the amount of cash provided (used) by investing activities for property and equipment for the year ended February 2, 2003? What is one possible explanation for the difference between these two amounts?
