# Worksheet on Uniform Rate of Depreciation

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on uniform rate of depreciation.

Applying the principle of compound interest, we can find the values, when subjected to uniform rate of growth by the formula Q = P(1 + $$\frac{r}{100}$$)$$^{n}$$ and in case of uniform rate of decreases, the same can be done using Q = P(1 - $$\frac{r}{100}$$)$$^{n}$$.
