    At the beginning of 2004, Bellamy Company acquired equipment costing $60,000. It was estimated that this equipment would have a useful life of 6 years and a residual value of $6,000 at that time. The straight-line method of depreciation was considered the most appropriate to use with this type of equipment. Depreciation is to be recorded at the end of each year

    During 2006 (the third year of the equipment's life), the company's engineers reconsidered their expectations and estimated that the equipment's useful life would probably be 7 years (in total) instead of 6 years. The estimated residual value was not changed at this time. However, during 2009 the estimated residual value was reduced to $3,000.


    Indicate how much depreciation expense should be recorded for this equipment each year by completing the following table

    Year Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation

    (2010 depreciation expense, $8,700)
