# Calculate Accelerated Depreciation Value without Circular Reference

#### MXL

##### Board Regular
Greetings,

I am trying to calculate accelerated method of depreciation, anyway, the book value in C8 must equal the salvage value of \$200 in cell C2. The answer in cell E8 is right in theory, but, I want it to compute so that the book value in C8 = \$200.

The cell I highlighted in blue or in cell E9 is the answer that I would want to be in cell E8. The reason it is \$2,392 is because that is the amount needed when the value \$2,592 in cell C7 is subtracted from \$2,392 which would give you \$200. But, the problem I get is a circular reference.

The formula I have in cell E9 highlighted in blue is =IF(C8>C2,E8+(C8-C2),IF(C2>C8,E8-(C2-C8))). This works fine in an isolate cell which is E9, but I want this formula to work in cell E8 without a circular reference.
