## Depreciation

 doubledepreciation( double valCost double valSalv int life int per double fact = 2.0 )
This function calculates the depreciation of an asset for a specified period. The method used is a fixed-declining method. This function is equivalent to the Microsoft Excel function DDB. It works on the following set of equations:

With two special cases, when period=1:

When period=life:

Where:
• salv is the salvage value of the asset,
• cost is the initial cost of the asset,
• life is the number of periods over which the asset is being depreciated.
• prevTot is the total depreciation from previous periods.

### Example 1

#include <stdio.h>
#include <codecogs/finance/accounting/deprecfixeddec.h>

int main(void)
{
double costVal=1000000;
double salvVal=100000;

printf("Consider an asset with the following terms:\n");
printf("Cost\t\tSalvage\t\tLife\tPeriod\tMonth\tDepreciation\n");

for (int per=1; per<=7; ++per)
{
printf("%f\t%f\t6\t%i\t7\t%f\n",
costVal,
salvVal,
per,
Finance::Accounting::deprecFixedDec(costVal, salvVal, 6, per, 7));
}

printf("\n");
costVal=2500;
salvVal=500;
for (int per=1; per<=4; ++per)
{
printf("%f\t%f\t3\t%i\t6\t%f\n",
costVal,
salvVal,
per,
Finance::Accounting::deprecFixedDec(costVal, salvVal, 3, per, 6));
}

return 0;
}
Output:
Consider an asset with the following terms:
