## Example Problem

How to calculate furniture depreciation?

**First, determine the purchase price of the furniture.**For this example, we are looking at a sofa that was purchased at $1,000.00.

**Next, determine the average depreciation rate per year.**Looking at the table above, the depreciation rate for a sofa is found to be 7% per year on average.

**Next, determine the age of the furniture.**This furniture has been owned for 6 years.

**Finally, calculate the current value of the furniture using the formula above.**CV = OP – (D/100*OP*A)

CV = 1000 – (7/100*1000*6)

CV = $580.00.
