    I usually don't help with school work, but I have to admit this is a good question.  I can see where the question itself could be unclear.  I would say the minus figure is a credit.  That's because (1) reducing any asset is done by a credit, and (2) if it means to subtract $8,560 from Computer Software, its again done with a credit.  Software is usually an intangible asset.
