This machine is expected to have a five-year life and a \$50,000 salvage value. All sales are for cash, and all costs are out of pocket except for depreciation on the new machine. Additional information includes the following: Expected annual sales of new product \$850,000 Expected annual costs of new product Direct materials 200,000 Direct labor 175,000 Overhead excluding depreciation on new machine 100,000 Selling and administrative expenses 127,500 Income taxes 40% Required: 1.
