Consider data in problem 18-1 (see below). Assume that Reynolds tax rate is 40% and that the equipment's depreciation would be $100 per year. If the company leased the asset on a 2-year lease, the payment would be $110 at the beginning of each year. If Reynolds borrowed and bought, the bank would charge 10% interest on the loan. In either case, the equipment is worth nothing after 2 years and will be discarded.
Should Reynolds lease or buy the equipment?

Data from 18-1
Current Assets - $300 Debt - $400
Net fixed assets - $500 Equity - $400
Total Assets - $800 Total Claims - $800
