True or False. Depreciation is a process of allocating the cost of a plant asset over its useful life. True
True or False. Depreciation is based on the matching principle because it matches the cost of the asset with the revenue generated over the asset's useful life. True

On July 1, 2010, Horizon Com. purchased a new piece of equipment that cost $45,000. The estimated useful life is 10 yrs and estimated residual value is $5,000. What is the depreciation expense for 2010 if Horizon uses the straight-line method? $2,000 ($45,000 - $5,000)/10 x 6/12 = $2,000)
Assume Horizon purchased the equipment on Jan. 1, 2010. If Horizon uses the straight-line method for depreciation, what is the asset's book value at the end of 2011? $37,000 [($45,000 - $5,000)/10 x 2 = $8,000; $45,000 = $8,000 = $37,000]
Assume Horizon purchased the equipment on Jan. 1, 2010. If Horizon uses the double-declining-balance method, what is depreciation for 2011? $7,200 [$45,000 x .2 = $9,000; ($45,000 - $9,000) x .2 = $7,200]
Return to Horizon's original purchase date. Assume that Horizon uses the straight-line method of depreciation and sells the equip. for $36,500 on July 1, 2014. The result of the sale of the equip. is a gain(loss) of? $7,500 [($45,000 - $5,000)/5 x 4 = $16,000; $45,000 - $16,000 = $29,000; $36,500 - $29,000 = gain of $7,500]
A company bought a new machine for $24,000 on Jan. 1. The machine is expected to last 5 yrs and have a residual value of $4,000. If the company uses the double-declining-balance method, accumulated depreciation at the end of year 2 will be: $15,360 [$24,000 x 2/5 = $9,600; ($24,000 - $9,600) x 2/5 = $5,760; $9,600 + $5,760 = $15,360]
