    It will depreciate the new equipment for 50,000 dollars


    It can depreciate another 50,000 dollar as the 179 S doesn't allow for a depreication that can generate a net loss.

    If Rex depreciate the entire 150,000 dollars their net income of 50,000 will swing into a loss of 100,000 That is not allowed. Thus, the aximum amount available for Rex is 50,000
