(Round all computations and final answers to 0 decimal places, i.e. 2,250. If answer is zero, please enter 0, do not leave any fields blank.)

Depreciation is computed for the full year on the January 1 balance in the asset account.
Depreciation is computed for the full year on the December 31 balance in the asset account.
Depreciation for one-half year is charged on plant assets acquired or disposed of during the year.
Depreciation is computed on additions from the beginning of the month following acquisition and on disposals to the beginning of the month following disposal.
Depreciation is computed for a full period on all assets in use for over one-half year, and no depreciation is charged on assets in use for less than one-half year. (Use 365 days for base.)
