By adding instalment of $80000 and cost of research related $ 30000

80000+30000= 110000

Initial cost of the project = $300000


Instalment cost = $ 110000


Salvage value = $ 60000


Inventories = $ 45000


Account payable = $12000


Total sales = $ 2370000


Operating cost = $1248300


Tax rate = $ 948000


Weighted average cost of capital = $57000


Therefore :


net working capital (NWC) = current asset - Current liabilities


NWC =$ (300000+ 110000 + 45000+ 2370000) - $ (60000+ 12000+948000+499700+1248300)


NWC = $(2825000 - 2768000)


Nwc = $57000
