      • b. First in, first out (FIFO).
      • c. Last in, first out (LIFO).
      • d. Specific identification. (Assume that the first sale was selected from the beginning inventory and the second sale was selected from the January 12 purchase.)
    2. Of FIFO and LIFO, which method would result in the higher pretax income? Which would result in the higher EPS?
    3. Of FIFO and LIFO, which method would result in the lower income tax expense? Explain, assuming a 35 percent average tax rate.

    Installation cost $500 $1,000 $200
    Renovation costs prior to use $2,000 $1,000 $1,500

    By the end of the first year, each machine had been operating 4,800 hours. Depreciation estimates are shown in Table 2 below:

    Problem 2, Table 2: Equipment Depreciation
    Machine Life Residual Value Depreciation Method
    A 5 years $1,000 Straight-line
    B 60,000 hours $2,000 Units-of-production
    C 4 years $1,500 Double-declining balance
