Question: Howarth Manufacturing Company purchased a lathe on June 30 2009

Howarth Manufacturing Company purchased a lathe on June 30, 2009, at a cost of $80,000. The residual value of the lathe was estimated to be $5,000 at the end of a five-year life. The lathe was sold on March 31, 2013, for $17,000. Howarth uses the straight-line depreciation method for all of its plant and equipment. Partial-year depreciation is calculated based on the number of months the asset is in service.

Required:
1. Prepare the journal entry to record the sale.
2. Assuming that Howarth had instead used the sum-of-the-years’-digits depreciation method, prepare the journal entry to record the sale.
