Part-A)

• The first cost of the asset:

Here the formula derived for the book value of an asset will be:

Book Value = Initial cost − Accumulated depreciation

Thus, the first cost will be:

Book Value = Initial cost − Accumulated depreciation

$62,000 = Initial cost − 3 × depreciation/year$62,000 = Initial cost − $78,000 Initial Cost =$62,000 + $78,000 Initial Cost =$140,000

Part-B)

• The assumed salvage value:

Salvage Value:

Salvage Value = Initial Cost − Total asset life × Depreciation/year

Salvage Value = $140,000 − (5 ×$26,000)

Salvage Value = $140,000 −$130,000

Salvage Value = \$10,000
