One simple method of finding out scrap value after 15 years is as shown below:

Cost of Machine = Rs.40000 and rate of depreciation is 10% on written down value method

Life of Machine = 15 years

Scrap of value after 15 years = Rs.40000 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 x .9 = Rs.8235.64

Note: After charging depreciation at the rate of 10%, written down value of machine is 90% i.e. .9.

Second method is by using the formula: R = [1 - Nāˆš(scrap value/cost)] X 100    (N is life of machine in number of years and also it is Nth root)

10 = [1 - 15āˆš(S/40000)] X 100      

10/100 = [1 - 15āˆš(S/40000)]

1 - .1 = (15āˆšS/40000)

(.9)^15 = S/40000

S = Rs.8235.64
