Question;Test03(Each Problem worth 5 Points) Please complete any 3 problems (must do problem 3) and complete any one remaining for Bonus worth 1.5 points. Please show all work.1. A military project is expected to generate earnings before taxes (EBT) of $60,000 per year. Annualdepreciation from the project is $30,000 and the firm's tax rate is 40 percent. Determine the project'sannual net cash flows.2. IBM is replacing an old assembly line that cost $80,000 five years ago, with a new, more efficientmachine that will cost $225,000. Shipping and installation will cost an additional $20,000. The oldmachine has a book value of $15,000 but will be sold as scrap for $5,000. The new machine will bedepreciated with a 7 year life under MACRS guidelines. With the increased production, inventories willincrease $4,000, accounts receivable will increase $16,000, and accounts payable will increase $14,000. IfIBM has a marginal tax rate of 40 percent, what is the net investment?3.

A new drill press is considered a possible new investment for SHELL OIL Corporation if it generates anexpected return of $2,000 per year for the first five years and $2,500 per year for the last five years. Itsexpected purchase price (including installation) is $9,400. What is the drill press project's expectedinternal rate of return?Suppose that SHELL OIL can borrow the necessary funds in the money and capital markets to make thisinvestment at a cost of 15%.
