a.     Southward Manufacturing is considering the purchase of a new welding system. The cash benefits will be \$400,000 per year. The system costs \$2,250,000 and will last 10 years.

b.    Kaylin Day is interested in investing in a women’s specialty shop. The cost of the investment is \$180,000. She estimates that the return from owning her own shop will be \$35,000 per year. She estimates that the shop will have a useful life of six years.

c.     Goates Company calculated the NPV of a project and found it to be \$21,300. The project’s life was estimated to be eight years. The required rate of return used for the NPV calculation was 10 percent. The project was expected to produce annual after-tax cash flows of \$45,000.
