The company has determined the following ((FV of $1, PV of $1, FVA of $1, PVA of $1, FVAD of $1 and PVAD of $1) (Use appropriate factor(s) from the tables provided.) Machine A could be purchased for $16,500. It will last 10 years with annual maintenance costs of $600 per year. After 10 years the machine can be sold for $1,650. Machine B could be purchased for $15,000. It also will last 10 years and will require maintenance costs of $2,400 in year three, $3,000 in year six, and $3,600 in year eight.
