The amount of accumulated depreciation at December 31, 2023 = \$88,800.

Explanation:

Determining the actual acquisition cost.

The actual acquisition cost = Purchase value + freight charges + Installation costs.

The actual acquisition cost = 460,000 + 15,000 + 34,000.

The actual acquisition cost = \$509,000.

Determining the depreciable cost.

The depreciable cost = acquisition cost - Salvage value.

The depreciable cost = 509,000 - 65000.

The depreciable cost = \$444,000.

Determining annual depreciation expense.

Annual depreciation expense = depreciable cost / number of years.

Annual depreciation expense = 444,000 / 10.

Annual depreciation expense = 44,400.

Determining the accumulated depreciation.

The accumulated depreciation = annual depreciation expense * number of years.

The accumulated depreciation = 44,400 * 2.

The amount of accumulated depreciation at December 31, 2023 = \$88,800.
