Given below is the formula for calculating depreciation in this method.

            R = 1 – (S/C)1/n X 100

Where R = Rate of Depreciation (in %),

n = Useful life of the asset (in years)

S = Scrap value at the end of useful life of the asset

C= Cost of the asset

R = 1 – (256/10000)1/4 X 100

R = (1 - .4) x 100 = 60%
