In recent years, Avery Transportation purchased three used buses. Because of frequent turnover in the accounting department, a different accountant selected the depreciation method for each bus, and various methods were selected. Information concerning the buses is summarized as follows.
Bus   Acquired   Cost   Salvage
Value
  Useful Life
in Years
  Depreciation
Method
1   1/1/12   $ 97,900   $ 7,500   5   Straight-line
2   1/1/12   128,000   11,900   5   Declining-balance
3   1/1/13   81,660   9,000   5   Units-of-activity

For the declining-balance method, the company uses the double-declining rate. For the units-of-activity method, total miles are expected to be 121,100. Actual miles of use in the first 3 years were: 2013, 26,000; 2014, 33,800; and 2015, 30,400.
