regarding each machine are provided below.

Machine A |
Machine B |
||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Original cost | $74,500 | $183,000 | |||

Estimated life | 8 years | 8 years | |||

Salvage value | 0 | 0 | |||

Estimated annual cash inflows | $20,300 | $40,200 | |||

Calculate the net present value and profitability index of each
machine. Assume a 9% discount rate. *(If the net present
value is negative, use either a negative sign preceding the number
eg -45 or parentheses eg (45). Round answer for present value to 0
decimal places, e.g. 125 and profitability index to 2 decimal
places, e.g. 10.50. For calculation purposes, use 5 decimal places
as displayed in the factor table provided.)*

Particulars |
Machine A |
Machine B |

Estimated Annual Cash Inflows | $20,300 | $40,200 |

Estimated Annual Cash outflows | ($5,100) | ($9,810) |

Net Annual Cash
outflows |
$15,200 | $30,390 |

x PVAF ( 9% x 8 Years) | 5.53482 | 5.53482 |

Present value of Cash inflows | $84,129 | $168,203 |

Less: initial Investment | ($74,500) | ($183,000) |

Net Present
Value |
$9,629 |
$14,797 |

Profitability Index= Present value of annual cash inflows / initial Investment |
1.13 |
0.92 |

Machine A should be Purchased
