The Moore Corporation is considering the acquisition of a new machine. The machine can be purchased for \$90,000, it
will cost \$6,000 to transport to Moore’s plant and \$9,000 to install. It is estimated that the machine will last 10 years, and
it is expected to have an estimated salvage value of \$5,000. Over its 10-year life, the machine is expected to produce
2,000 units per year with a selling price of \$500 and combined materials and labor costs of \$450 per unit. Federal tax
regulations permit machines of this type to be depreciated using the straight-line method over 5 years with no estimated
salvage value. Moore has a marginal tax rate of 40%
