Solution

Let original value of machine=Rs100

For 1st year

P=Rs100; R=12% and T= 1year

Depreciation in 1st year= Rs =Rs12

Value at the end of 1st year=Rs100 - Rs12=Rs88

For 2nd year

P= Rs88; R=12% and T= 1year

Depreciation in 2nd year= Rs =Rs10.56

When depreciation in 2nd year is Rs10.56, original cost is Rs100

When depreciation in 2nd year is Rs2,640, original cost=

=Rs25,000
