**Declining Balance Rate** The straight line **rate** is **calculated** by dividing the asset's total life of 100 percent by the estimated number of years of an asset's life. If the asset's estimated life is five years, the straight line **rate** would be **calculated** as 100 percent divided by 5, or 20 percent each year.
