Compute the payback period for each of these two separate investments: a. A new operating system for an existing machine is expected to cost $520,000  and have a useful life of six years. The system yields an incremental after-tax  income of $150,000 each year after deducting its straight-line depreciation.  The predicted salvage value of the system is $10,000.  b. A machine costs $380,000, has a $20,000 salvage value, is expected to last  eight years, and will generate an after-tax income of $60,000 per year after  straight-line depreciation. Payback period = Cost of investment                              Annual net cash flow a. 520,000 / 140,000 (150,000 – 10,000) = 3.7 years b. 380,000 / 40,000 (60,000 – 20,000) = 9.5 years  Exercise 25-1 Payback period  computation; even cash  flows P1 a.
