With this method, of $2800 is deducted the first year,
the second year, and so on, until is deducted the
fourth year. Both depreciation methods yield a total deduction
of $2800 over the 4 years. (Source: Sharp Electronics Corporation,

(a) Find an arithmetic sequence that gives the
amount depreciated each year by each method.
(b) Write a series whose sum is the amount depreciated
over 4 years by each method

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For tax purposes, businesses frequently depreciate equipment. Two methods of depreciation are straightline depreciation and sumoftheyears’digits. Suppose that a college student buys a $3000 computer to start a business that provides Internet services. This student estimates the life of the computer at 4 years, after which its value will be $200. The difference between $3000 and $200, or $2800, may be deducted from the student’s taxable income over a 4year period. In straightline depreciation, equal portions of $2800 are deducted each year over the 4 years. The sumoftheyears’ digits method calculates depreciation differently. For a computer having a useful life of 4 years, the sum of the years is computed by 1 + 2 + 3 +4 +5= 10.
