# Mountain Fresh Water Company is considering two mutually exclusive machines.

Mountain Fresh Water Company is considering two mutually exclusive machines.  Machine A has an up-front cost of \$100,000 (CF0 = -100,000), and it produces positive after-tax cash inflows of \$40,000 a year at the end of each of the next 6 years.
Machine B has an up-front cost of \$50,000(CF0 = -50,000), and it produces after-tax cash inflows of \$30,000 a year at the end of the next 3 years.  After 3 years, Machine B can be replaced at a cost of \$55,000 (paid at t = 3).  The replacement machine will produce after-tax cash inflows of \$32,000 a year for 3 years (inflows received at t = 4, 5, and 6).
The company's cost of capital is 10.5%.  What is the net present value (on a 6-year extended basis) of the more profitable machine?
