Share-based compensation recognized in 2015 was $1.3 billion ($1.1 billion in 2014 and $1.1 billion in 2013) During 2015, the tax benefit that we realized for the tax deduction from share-based awards totaled $533 million ($555 million in 2014 and $385 million in 2013)… We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of options granted under our equity incentive plans and rights to acquire stock granted under the 2006 Plan and rights to acquire shares of common stock under the 2006 Stock Purchase Plan. No options were granted in 2015. We based the weighted average estimated value of employee stock option grants and rights granted under the stock purchase plan, as well as the weighted average assumptions used in calculating the fair value, on estimates at the date of grant, as follows
|Expected life (in years)||n/a||5.1||5.2||0.5||0.5||0.5|
|Risk-free interest rate||n/a||1.7%||0.8%||0.1%||0.1%||0.1%|
