Computing Depreciation and Book Value for Two Years Using Alternative Depreciation Methods and Interpreting the Impact on Cash Flows – Schrade Company bought a machine for \$96,000 cash. The estimated useful life was four years, and the estimated residual value was \$6,000. Assume that the estimated useful life in productive units is 120,000. Units actually produced were 43,000 in year 1 and 45,000 in year 2.Required:1. Determine the appropriate amounts to complete the following schedule.
