Unformatted text preview: I = 14, solve: PMT = -617.24. PMT Machine 2: PV = 1664, N = 6, I = 14, solve: PMT = -427.91. PMT EAA1 = \$617 EAA2 = \$428 This tells us that: NPV1 = annuity of \$617 per year. \$617 NPV2 = annuity of \$428 per year. \$428 So, we’ve reduced a problem with So, different time horizons to a couple of annuities. annuities. Decision Rule: Select the highest EAA. We would choose machine #1. EAA. Step 3: Convert back to NPV ∞ Step 3: Convert back to NPV ∞ Assuming infinite replacement, the Assuming EAAs are actually perpetuities. Get the PV by dividing the EAA by the required rate of return. rate Step 3: Convert back to NPV ∞ Assuming infinite replacement, the Assuming EAAs are actually perpetuities. Get the PV by dividing the EAA by the required rate of return. rate ∞ NPV 1 = 617/.14 = \$4,407 NPV Step 3: Convert back to NPV ∞ Assuming infinite replacement, the Assuming EAAs are actually perpetuities. Get the PV by dividing the EAA by the required rate of return. rate ∞ NPV 1 = 617/.14 = \$4,407 NPV ∞ NPV 2 = 428/.14 = \$3,057 NPV Step 3: Convert back to NPV ∞ Assuming infinite replacement, the Assuming EAAs are actually perpetuities. Get the PV by dividing the EAA by the required rate of return. rate ∞ NPV 1 = 617/.14 = \$4,407 NPV ∞ NPV 2 = 428/.14 = \$3,057 NPV This doesn’t change the answer, of This course; it just converts EAA to a NPV that can be compared. that...
