    If straight-line depreciation is used, the value being depreciated over 8 years is

    25,560 - 3,000 = 22,560

    so the depreciation in 4 years is

    22,560*4/8 = 11,280

    This is also the remaining value to be depreciated, now in 2 years. The depreciation in year 5 is

    11,280/2 = 5,640
