Q.Cost of machinery on 01.04.2002 = ________.

Solution:

Let machinery on 1.04.2002 be x.
so 1st year depreciation will be x×10/100=x/10.
2nd year depreciation will be (x-x/10)×10/100 = 9x/100.
so total depreciation will be x/10 + 9x/100= 19x/100.
Therefore value of machinery on 01.04.2002 will be
x- 19x/100 =567000
ie. 81x/100 =567000
x =567000×100÷81
=700000

let the balance on 1april 2003 be x.
then depreciation will be 10%of x i.e.
10x ÷100= x/10 from this we can understand that x- x/10 =567000 .
here we found thae value of which is 630000.
same process we will follow for the year 2002 to 2003 x-x/10=630000 and value of x is 700000.
