Exercise 253 Payback period computation; even cash flows LO P1
Compute the payback period for each of these two separate investments: 
a. 
A new operating system for an existing machine is expected to cost $240,000 and have a useful life of four years. The system yields an incremental aftertax income of $69,230 each year after deducting its straightline depreciation. The predicted salvage value of the system is $9,000. 
b. 
A machine costs $180,000, has a $13,000 salvage value, is expected to last seven years, and will generate an aftertax income of $38,000 per year after straightline depreciation. 
Exercise 254 Accounting rate of return LO P2
A machine costs $300,000 and is expected to yield an aftertax net income of $9,000 each year. Management predicts this machine has a 9year service life and a $60,000 salvage value, and it uses straightline depreciation. Compute this machine’s accounting rate of return. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

B2B Co. is considering the purchase of equipment that would allow the company to add a new product to its line. The equipment is expected to cost $368,000 with a 4year life and no salvage value. It will be depreciated on a straightline basis. K2B Co. concludes that it must earn at least a 8% return on this investment. The company expects to sell 147,200 units of the equipment’s product each year. The expected annual income related to this equipment follows.

Exercise 2511 Keep or replace LO A1
Xinhong Company is considering replacing one of its manufacturing machines. The machine has a book value of $38,000 and a remaining useful life of 5 years, at which time its salvage value will be zero. It has a current market value of $48,000. Variable manufacturing costs are $33,000 per year for this machine. Information on two alternative replacement machines follows.

Exercise 2512 Scrap or rework LO A1
A company must decide between scrapping or reworking units that do not pass inspection. The company has 10,000 defective units that cost $5.70 per unit to manufacture. The units can be sold as is for $2.50 each, or they can be reworked for $3.50 each and then sold for the full price of $9.50 each. If the units are sold as is, the company will have to build 10,000 replacement units at a cost of $5.70 each, and sell them at the full price of $9.50 each. 
(1) 
What is the incremental income from selling the units as scrap and reworking and selling the units?

The company has an opportunity to sell 50,000 additional units at $12 per unit. The additional sales would not affect its current expected sales. Direct materials and labor costs per unit would be the same for the additional units as they are for the regular units. However, the additional volume would create the following incremental costs: (1) total overhead would increase by 16% and (2) administrative expenses would increase by $215,000. 
Calculate the combined total net income if the company accepts the offer to sell additional units at the reduced price of $12 per unit.
Exercise 2514 Make or buy decision LO A1
Gilberto Company currently manufactures one of its crucial parts at a cost of $3.30 per unit. This cost is based on a normal production rate of 80,000 units per year. Variable costs are $1.80 per unit, fixed costs related to making this part are $80,000 per year, and allocated fixed costs are $40,000 per year. Allocated fixed costs are unavoidable whether the company makes or buys the part. Gilberto is considering buying the part from a supplier for a quoted price of $3.00 per unit guaranteed for a threeyear period. 
Calculate the total incremental cost of making 80,000 units. (Round cost per unit answers to 2 decimal places.) 


Exercise 2515 Sell or process decision LO A1
Cobe Company has already manufactured 25,000 units of Product A at a cost of $25 per unit. The 25,000 units can be sold at this stage for $410,000. Alternatively, the units can be further processed at a $240,000 total additional cost and be converted into 5,600 units of Product B and 11,400 units of Product C. Per unit selling price for Product B is $106 and for Product C is $54. 
1. 
Prepare an analysis that shows whether the 25,000 units of Product A should be processed further or not.

Colt Company owns a machine that can produce two specialized products. Production time for Product TLX is two units per hour and for Product MTV is five units per hour. The machine’s capacity is 2,000 hours per year. Both products are sold to a single customer who has agreed to buy all of the company’s output up to a maximum of 3,400 units of Product TLX and 1,980 units of Product MTV. Selling prices and variable costs per unit to produce the products follow.
