On June 28, 2012, machinery included in the March 31, 2011, purchase that cos $100,000 was sold for $80,000. Herzog uses the straight-line depreciation method for buildings and machinery and the sum-of-the-years’-digits method for equipment.  Partial-year depreciation is calculated based on the number of months an asset is in service.


1.      Compare depreciation expense on the building, machinery, and equipment for 2011.

2.      Prepare journal entries to record (1) depreciation on the machinery sold on June 29, 2012, and (2) the sale of machinery.
