Otter must decide whether to replace a 10 year-old packing machine with a new one that costs$153,800. Replacing the old machine will increase net operating income(excluding depreciation) from$70,000 to $110,000 and it will decrease net working capital by $18,000. The new machine falls into MACRS 5-year class. If the new machine is purchased, it will be sold in 6 years for $25,000, whereas, if the old machine is kept, it will have no salvage value in 6 years. The old machine has a current market value of $10,860 and although its current book value is $8,000, in one year the old machineâs book value will be zero ($0). The firmâs marginal tax rate is 40% and its required rate of return is 12%. Should the new packing machine be purchased? Explain.

I was looking at examples and that seems to be what they are looking for?
