    1. Credit accumulated depreciation $7612.50

    Debit Asset/machinery $7612.50

    2. Credit Asset / Machinery $5827.5

    Debit Accumulated depreciation $5827.50

    Explanation:

    Cost of machine = $63000

    Useful life = 8yrs

    Salvage value = $ 4200

    Depreciable amount on this basis $ (63000-4200) = 58800

    Annual depreciation = 58800/8 = 7350

    5yrs depreciation = 7350 * 5=$36750.

    Revised Useful life - 10yrs

    Revised Salvage value = $4725

    Revised depreciable amount = $58275

    Annual depreciation = 58275/10 = $5,827.50

    5yrs depreciation = $29,137.50

    Difference in accumulated depreciation = $36750-$29137.5

    $7612.50
