2. On March 31 of the current year, a truck was purchased for $63,700. The truck has an estimated residual value of $4,200 and is expected to be driven 100,000 miles over the next 5 years. During the current year, the truck will be driven 12,600 miles. The firm wishes to avoid the depreciation method that will give them the highest depreciation expense for the current year ended December 31.

3. On January 1, 1998, a machine costing $159,000 was purchased. The machine was expected to have a useful life of 8 years and an estimated residual value of $5,400. The straight-line method of depreciation is being used. On January 1, 2001, it was determined that the machine would last an additional 10 years (i.e. until 12/31/2010) from that date, residual value remaining unchanged. What amount of depreciation expense will be recorded on this machine for the year ended December 31, 2001?
