Answer to Question #68845 in Other Economics for Candace

Question #68845
Hello, I need assistance with this economic problems. I have no idea how to figure it out. I would really appreciated if I get could the step by step solution or how to do it step by step. Thanks. P.S. I need it either within the next hour or 5. Problem: You have two alternatives for purchasing a machine to be used in a project that will run for 10 years. Which option would you choose if discount rate is 8%? . Alternative 1 Initial Cost= $50,000 Alternative 2 Initial Cost= $65,000 Alternative 1 Useful Life= 7 years Alternative 2 Useful Life= 11 years Estimated salvage value at end of useful life: Alternative 1= $10,000 Alternative 2= $5,000 Estimated market value, end of year 10: Alternative 1= $20,000 Alternative 2= $15,000 Hint: If Alternative 1 is picked, at year 7, it should be purchased again since its lifetime of the first purchased item will be over. Then, initial cost will accrue again in year 7 and salvage value at year 10 is $20,000 rather than $10,000.
