P.4 Eldon Engine, Inc., produces engines for the watercraft industry. An outside manufacturer has offered to supply several component parts used in the engine assemblies, which are currently being produced by Eldon. The supplier will charge Eldon \$290 per engine for the set of parts. Eldon’s current costs for those part sets are direct materials, \$150; direct labor, \$70; and manufacturing overhead applied at 100% of direct labor. Variable manufacturing overhead is considered to be 20% of the total, and fixed overhead will not change if the part sets are acquired from the outside supplier.
If Eldon Engine, Inc., accept the offer to purchase the parts, what would be the net advantage or disadvantage per engine of purchasing?

South Bay Manufacturing Ltd. is considering the investment of \$86,000 in a new machine. The machine will generate cash flow of \$15,000 per year for each year of its eleven-year life and will have a salvage value of \$8,000 at the end of its life. The company’s cost of capital is 10%.
(a) using the Table 6-4 and Table 6-5, calculate the net present value of the proposed investment. (Ignore income taxes.) (Round pv factor to 4 decimal places, intermediate calculations and the final answer to the nearest dollar amount. Negative amount should be indicated by a minus sign. Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

P.9 Lake Regional Hospital is considering the acquisition of a new diagnostic scanning machine. The investment required to get the machine operational will be \$1,897,000. The machine will be capable of performing 8,900 scanning procedures per year, but based on the experience of other hospitals, management estimates that the machine will be used at 80% of its capacity. The hospital’s cost of capital is 10%; the machine has an estimated useful life of eight years and no salvage value. Use the appropriate factors from Table 6-5 to answer the following questions.
(a)Assuming a constant cash flow every year, calculate the annual net cash flow required from the scanner if the IRR of the investment is to equal 10%. (Hint: The annual net cash flow requirement is an annuity.) (Round pv factor to 4 decimal places and the final answer to the nearest dollar amount. Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

(b)If the direct cash costs of operating the scanner equal 46% of the annual net cash flow requirement calculated in part a, what price should the hospital charge per scanning procedure in order to achieve an 10% ROI? (Intermediate calculations and the final answer to the nearest dollar amount. Omit the “\$” sign in your response.)

H.11Busy Beaver Corp. is interested in reviewing its method of evaluating capital expenditure proposals using the accounting rate of return method. A recent proposal involved a \$110,000 investment in a machine that had an estimated useful life of five years and an estimated salvage value of \$23,000. The machine was expected to increase net income (and cash flows) before depreciation expense by \$28,000 per year. The criteria for approving a new investment are that it have a rate of return of 10% and a payback period of three years or less.
