Question 1)

A company is considering expanding their production capabilities with a new machine that costs \$47,000 and has a projected lifespan of 10 years. They estimate the increased production will provide a constant \$5,000 per year of additional income. Money can earn 0.6% per year, compounded continuously. Should the company buy the machine?

Question 2)
