Can someone please post the solution?

I had no idea at first, so I used good old guess & check until I got 0.292, then I wrote my working out afterwards. lol.

lol i had no idea for that question because didnt it say that salvage value would be 0. so when i did all my subsititutions i got
4root of 0/800 equals r, and that left me with like 0
so thats what i wrote!!

Do you think ill at least get say 1/2 mark for trying hehe i mean the damn thing is worth 4 marks!!!

ahhh failure smells good!!

yup.. got 29~ %
I thought it was different for them to put that type of question in, especially because it was all worth 4 marks... took a bit of problem solving skills.. or just basically some equation manipulation.

I liked it.. a nice end to it.

I was among the seeming throng who got 29.285% or thereabouts.. (Rounded to 29.3%). I just figured out the value after 2 years for Straight-line ($400), and then did guess and-check using the depreciation formula..
