Depreciation SL DDB: Kleener Co Acquired New Truck

Kleener Co acquired a new delivery truck at the beginning of it's current fiscal year. The truck cost $26k and has an estimated useful life of 4 years and an estimated salvage value of $4k.

Calculate depreciation expense for each year of the trucks life using:
1. straight line depreciation.
2. double-declining balance depreciation

Calculate the trucks net book value at the end of its third year of use under each depreciation method.

Assume that Kleener Co had no more use for the truck after the end of the third year and that at the beginning of the fourth year it had an offer from a buyer who was willing to pay $6,200 for the truck. Should the depreciation method used by Kleener Co affect the decision to sell the truck?
