If you mean that 5 years depreciation was worth 50% of the value of the asset and that was £1,000.
Then Take the 1000 of residual value at the end of the 5 years
 Divide by the 2000 original value
 To get your 50%
 Find the 5th root of this .......... 0.870551
 1 minus this figure gives you the annual rate 12.945%
1((Original cost/Residual value)^(1/life))0 
God, you are good.......0
