In recent years, Letterman Company purchased three machines. Because of heavy
turnover in the accounting department, a different accountant was in charge of selecting the depreciation method for each machine, and various methods were selected. Information concerning the machines is summarized below.

Machine
Acquired
Cost Salvage
Value Useful Life
In Years Depreciation Method

1
1/1/99
$96,000
$ 6,000
10
Straight-line
2 1/1/00 60,000 10,000 8 Declining-balance
3 11/1/02 66,000 6,000 6 Units-of-activity

For the declining-balance method, the company uses the double-declining rate. For the units-of- activity method, total machine hours are expected to be 24,000. Actual hours of use in the first 3 years were: 2002, 1,000; 2003, 4,500; and 2004, 5,000.

Instructions
(a) Compute the amount of accumulated depreciation on each machine at December 31, 2002.
(b) If machine 2 had been purchased on April 1 instead of January 1, what would be the depreciation expense for this machine in (1) 2000 and (2) 2001?
