Question;(Ignore;income taxes in this problem.) Anne, Inc., is considering the purchase of a;machine that would cost $200,000 and would last for 8 years. At the end of 8;years, the machine would have a salvage value of $46,000. The machine would;reduce labor and other costs by $31,000 per year. Additional working capital of;$7,000 would be needed immediately. All of this working capital would be;recovered at the end of the life of the machine.
