On January 1, 2006, Landers Company purchased ten washing machines to be used in its coin operated laundry. Each washer cost $800 and was expected to have an $80 salvage value at the end of its four-year useful life. On September 30, 2009, Landers decided to purchase more efficient machines and sold the ten washers for $1,630. Landers uses straight-line depreciation for PP&E assets and records depreciation expense at the end of each year.

(b) Determine the gain or loss on the sale of the washers. Prepare the journal entry to record the sale of the washers.
(c) Suppose that, rather than being sold, the washers were simply hauled to the junkyard. Prepare the journal entry to record the disposal of the washers.
