would cost $37000, have a life of 4 years, have no salvage
value, and save the fum $5000 per year

in direct labor costs and $2000 per year indirect labor costs.
The existing machine tool was

purchased 4 years ago at a cost of $40000. It will last 4 more
years and have no salvage value

at the end of that time. It could be sold now for $10000 cash.

the difference in taxes, insurance, and so forth, for the two
alternatives is negligible. Determine
