Question: Pact Trucking Corporation uses the units of production depreciation method because units of producti

Pact Trucking Corporation uses the units-of-production depreciation method because units-of-production best measures wear and tear on the trucks. Consider these facts about one Mack truck in the company’s fleet.
When acquired in 2013, the rig cost $450,000 and was expected to remain in service for 10 years or 1,000,000 miles. Estimated residual value was $120,000. The truck was driven 82,000 miles in 2013, 122,000 miles in 2014, and 162,000 miles in 2015- After 39,000 miles, on March 15, 2016, the company traded in the Mack truck for a less expensive Freightliner. Pact also paid cash of $27,000. Fair market value of the Mack truck was equal to its net book value on the date of the trade.
1. Record the journal entry for depreciation expense in 2016.
2. Determine Pact’s cost of the new truck.
3. Record the journal entry for the exchange of assets on March 15, 2016. Assume the exchange had commercial substance.
