Question 1:

Pawtucket Furniture purchased land, paying $85,000 cash plus a $340,000 note payable. In addition,

Pawtucket paid delinquent property tax of $4,000, title insurance costing $4,500, title insurance costing

$4,500, and $7,000 to level the land and remove an unwanted building. The company then constructed an

office building at a cost of $650,000. It also paid $49,000 for a fence around the property, $14,000 for a

sign near the entrance, and $6,000 for special lighting of the grounds.

Requirement 1. Determine the cost of the land, land improvements, and building.

The cost of the land is $_____________

The total cost of the land improvements is $_______________

The cost of the building is $______________

Requirement 2. Which of these assets will Pawtucket depreciate?

___________________

Question 2:

Drive and Fly near an airport, incurred the following cost to acquire land, make land improvements, and

construct and finish a small building

Drive and Fly depreciates land improvements over 25 years, building over 50 years, and furniture over 12

years, all on a straight-line basis with zero residual value.

Requirements

1. Show how to account for each cost by listing the cost under the correct account. Determine the

total cost of each asset.

2. All construction was complete and the assets were placed in service on October 1. Record

partial-year ended December 31.

Data Table

Requirement 2. All construction was complete and the assets were placed in service on October 1.

Record partial-year depreciation for the year depreciation for the year ended December 31. (Record a

single compound journal entry. Round all depreciation expense amounts to the nearest whole dollar.

Record debits first, then credits. Select the explanation on the last line of the journal entry table.)

Question 3:

Wonder Fried Chicken bought equipment on January 2, 2016, for $33,000. The equipment was expected

to remain in service for four years and to perform 5,400 fry jobs. At the end of the equipment’s useful

life, Wonder estimates that its residual value will be $6,000. The equipment performed 540 jobs the first

year, 1620 the second year, 2,160 the third year, and 1,080 the fourth year.

Requirement 1.

Prepare a schedule of depreciation expense, accumulated depreciation, and book value per year for the

equipment under the three depreciation methods. Show your computations. Note: Three depreciation

schedules must be prepared.

Question 4:

Discount Hardware Consultants purchases a building for $904,000 and depreciated it on a straight-line

basis over a 40- year period. The estimated residual value is $104,000. After using the building for 15

years, Discount realized that wear and tear on the building would wear it out before 40 year

Question 5:

On January 2, 2016, Nimble Delivery Service purchased a truck at a cost of $100,000. Before placing the

truck in service, Nimble spent $2,200 painting it, $1,800 replacing tires, and $10,000 overhauling the

engine. The truck should remain in service for five years and have a residual value of $12,000. The

truck’s annual mileage is expected to be 32,000 miles in each of the first four years and 8,000 miles in the

fifth year-136,000 miles in total. In deciding which depreciation method to use, Jordan Lipnik, the

general manager, request a depreciation schedule for each of the depreciation methods (straight-line,

units-of-production, and double-declining-balance).

Requirement1. Prepare a depreciation schedule for each depreciation method, showing asset cost,

depreciation expense, accumulated depreciation, and asset book value.

Before completing the units-of production depreciation schedule, calculate the depreciation expense per

unit. (Round depreciation expense per unit to two decimal places.)

Prepare a depreciation schedule using the units-of –production method. (Enter the depreciation per unit to

two decimal places, $X.XX.)

Prepare a depreciation schedule using the double-declining-balance (DDB) method. (Round depreciation

expense to the nearest whole dollar.)

Requirement 2.

Nimble prepares financial statements using the depreciation method that reports the highest net income in

the early years of asset use. Consider the first year that Nimble uses the truck. Identify the depreciation

method that meets the company’s objectives.

The depreciation method that reports the highest net income in the first year is the

____________________ method. It produces the _____________ depreciation expense and therefore the

highest net income.

Choose 1 piece of music OF ANY GENRE OR TIME PERIOD (Classical OR Popular styles) to write about in a Listening Journal Entry.

Choose 1 piece of music OF ANY GENRE OR TIME PERIOD (Classical OR Popular styles) to write about in a Listening Journal Entry. This 1 entry should be approximately 3/4 to one full, single spaced page. This listening journal will be available in Blackboard for 2 DAYS after the due date. However, journals will lose 10% each day they are late. This journal will be worth 25 points. As always, write the journal in a standard program such as Microsoft Word, and upload your journal to this assignment through the link below: Attach File > Browse My Computer.

Please choose 1 song/piece of any style/genre. If possible, please paste into your document a URL link to a Youtube version of your chosen song/piece. This is so the instructors can have a reference for the accuracy of your observations.

**If you  reference, direcectly quote, or even paraphrase background information  from an outside source (such as a website), you MUST provide properly  formatted citations to avoid plagiarism. The reference book to use for  these citations is called “A Manual for Writers: of research papers, theses, and dissertations” 8th edition by Kate L. Turabian. This includes parenthetical/in-text citations at the end of sentences or paragraphs AND a brief Bibliography listing at the end of the journal.  However, since this is supposed to be YOUR thoughts and observations, it should not be necessary to use much outside information.**

You MUST include the following information: Name of the artistTitle of the song/piece. Name of the actual Composer (for popular music, this is often NOT the singer- use the internet, look this up). Specific genre and/or sub-genre: example- don’t just say “rock”. Which kind of rock?

In  the journal entry you should discuss: What do you hear? What is going  on in the piece? How does the music develop compositionally or  sound-wise throughout the piece? What are the instruments or vocal  ranges being used? What genre and/or style are they playing/singing?  What distinguishes this piece of music from others you know and have  listened to? What do you like about this music? What do you not like? Do  you have an emotional response to the music? Be specific and describe  what you hear. You should use vocabulary words that you have learned so  far, and your own words to describe the music.
