Question

The Doinion Freight Compny has invested 50000 USD in a new sorting machine that is expected to produce a return of 7500 USD per year for the next 10 years. At a 7 % annual interest rate, is this investment worthwhile?

Answer #1

Cost of new sorting machine = $50,000

Annual return from the machine = $7,500

Interest rate = 7%

Time period = 10 years

Calculate the present worth of the machine -

Present worth = - cost of new sorting machine + annual return (P/A, i, n)

Present worth = - 50,000 + 7,500(P/A, 7%, 10)

Present worth = - 50,000 + (7,500 * 7.024)

Present worth = - 50,000 + 52,680

Present worth = $2,680

**The present worth of the
investment is $2,680.**

**Based on present worth
analysis, an investment with positive present worth is
worthwhile.**

**The present worth of this
investment is positive.**

**So,**

**This investment is
worthwhile.**

Springdale Corporation plans to purchase a demolition and wrecking
machine to save labor costs. The machine costs $60,000 and has a

Acme has invested in a machine to enhance the worker's
productivity and job enrichment. The company purchased the machine
for $92,529 that has an expected useful life of 13 years and a
salvage value of $18,470. If the operation and maintenance costs
are estimated to be $4,520 per year over the machine's life, and
assuming an interest rate of 0.11 per year, the annual equivalent
cost of owning the machine is most nearly.

ROVNO Ltd. just invested $50 000 into a new local network.
