Should be 3000

5X/16 - 4X/16 = 600

X/16 = 600

5X/16 = 3000

You have used second years depreicated amount. we have to use first year's.

I get 1800 1500 and 1200 as the depreciated amonuts. Answer is 1500.

Got 1500 as well

Working is simple,

6x/16 - 4x/16 = 600, gives x = 4800

Now we need to find second year's depreciation, i.e 5x/16 = 1500
