17. Howarth Manufacturing Company purchased a lathe on June 30, 2007, at a cost of \$80,000. The residual value of the lathe was estimated to be \$5,000 at the end of a five-year life. The lathe was sold on March 31, 2011, for \$17,000. Howarth uses the straight-line depreciation method for all of its plant and equipment. Partial-year depreciation is calculated based on the number of months the asset is in service. Prepare the journal entry to record the sale. Assuming the company’s year end is March 31.

Depreciation for 2007-08: ((80000-5000)/5) X 9/12 = 11250
Depreciation for 2008-09: ((80000-5000)/5) = 15000
Depreciation for 2009-10: ((80000-5000)/5) = 15000
Depreciation for 2010-11: ((80000-5000)/5) = 15000
