Pasta Uno is operating an old pasta-making machine that is not expected to last more than two years. During that time, the machine is expected to generate a cash inflow of $20,000 per year. It could be replaced by a new machine at a cost of $150,000. The new machine is more efficient than the current one and, as a result, is expected to generate a net cash flow of $75,000 per year for three years.The management

of Pasta Uno is wondering whether to replace the old machine now or wait another year. Pasta Uno's cost of capital is 10 percent.

a)Assume that the current resale value of the old machine is zero and that the new machine will also have a zero resale value in the future. What is the annual-equivalent cash flow of using the new machine?

b)What should the management of Pasta Uno do? Explain by providing justification using concepts learned in lecture, textbook, and other resources as need. Your explanation should exhibit critical thinking.
