1. WD Mining Company purchased a section of land for $600,000 in 2000 to develop a zinc mine. The mine began operating in 2002. At that time, management estimated that the mine would produce 200,000 tons of quality ore. A total of 100,000 tons of ore was mined and processed from 2002 through December 31, 2009. During January 2010, a very promising vein was discovered. The revised estimate of ore still to be mined was 250,000 tons. Estimated salvage value for the mine land was $100,000 in both 2002 and 2010. Assuming that 10,000 tons of ore was mined in 2010, the computation WD Mining Company should use to determine the amount of depletion to record in 2010 would be
a. (($600,000 − $100,000)/450,000 tons) × 10,000 tons.
b. (($600,000 − $100,000)/350,000 tons) × 10,000 tons.
c. (($600,000 − $100,000 − $250,000)/350,000 tons) × 10,000 tons.
d. (($600,000 − $100,000 − $250,000)/250,000 tons) × 10,000 tons.

Norbend's management is of the opinion that the goodwill generated has an indefinite life. During the year-end audit for year 3 after all adjusting entries have been made, the goodwill is determined to be worthless. The amount of the write-off as of December 31, year 3 should be
a. $504,000.
b. $478,800.
c. $466,200.
d. $474,600.
