E355-Spring08-Test1-Sol 1.4 Assume a MARR of 18% and an infinite life. a) Find the capital recovery costs with infinite life [7 point] CR = Pi CR = 45,000 $ X (A/P, 18%, ) CR = 45,000 $ X 0.18 CR = $8,100 * Note: (A/P, i, N) = i , when N approachs . See page 144 on textbook. b) Find the capitalized cost [7 point] CC= P + A(P/A, I, N) + F(A/F, I, N)(P/A, I, N) CC = 45,000 + 5,000 X (P/A, 18%, ) + 3,000.0 X (A/F,18%,12) (P/A,18%, ) CC = 45,000 + 5,000 X 1/0.18 + 3,000.0 X 0.0286 1/0.18 CC = $73,254.44 * Note: (P/A, i, N) = 1 / i , when N approachs . See page 144 on textbook. c) Calculate the total annual cost. [7 point] Hint: Use capital recovery and annual maintenance cost Total annual cost = Capital Recovery + Annual maintenance cost Total annual cost = 8,100 + 5,000 Total annual cost = $13,100 / year d) Based on the result from part c, what would the average price per guest to cover the total annual costs?
