What is the cost of the truck? $ 18,100 + 1,730 + 220 + 1,170 = 21,220
Apex Chemicals Company acquires a delivery truck at a cost of $26,600 on January 1, 2007. The truck is expected to have a salvage value of $3,800 at the end of its 5-year useful life. Compute annual depreciation for the first and second years using the straight-line method. (Round your answers to 0 decimal places.)
Straight line depreciation method = (Total cost - Salvage value)/Useful life
= (26,000 - 3,800)/5
Depreciation expense per year = 4,440
First year depreciation $ 4,440
second year depreciation $ 4,440
On January 1, 2007, the Ewing Company ledger shows Equipment $32,000 and Accumulated Depreciation $14,000. The depreciation resulted from using the straight line method with a useful life of 10 years and a salvage value of $2,000. On this date the company concludes that the equipment has a remaining useful life of only 2 years with the same salvage value. Compute the revised annual depreciation

Remaining balance of the Equipment = Total Cost - Accumulated Depreciation
= 32,000 - 14,000
= 18,000
Straight line depreciation method = (Total cost - Salvage value)/Useful life
= (18,000 - 2,000)2
Depreciation expense per year = 8,000
Prepare journal entries to record these transactions: (For multiple debit/credit entries, list in order of magnitude.)
(a) Blaska Company retires its delivery equipment, which cost $41,000. Accumulated depreciation is also $41,000 on this delivery equipment. No salvage value is received
