Financial accounting question

Art Modell Company reported $61,000 in depreciation expense for the current year using the double-declining-balance method. The company estimates that it saved net cash of $12,000 in income taxes by using the double-declining-balance instead of the straight-line method. The company has a 30% tax rate. What would depreciation expense have been using the straight-line method?
A) $43,857 B) $40,000 C) $21,000 D) $7,200

This is the question

OK, what is your question about the question?

Can i know how to get the answer! Please answer directly.

I would divide the tax savings by their tax rate to arrive at their additional depreciation expense. Then I would reduce that from the actual depreciation to arrive at the straight-line depreciation.

Got it thank you very much
