Answer the following questions using the information below:

Hawkeye Cleaners has been considering the purchase of an industrial dry-cleaning machine. The existing machine is operable for three more years and will have a zero disposal price. If the machine is disposed now, it may be sold for $120,000. The new machine will cost $400,000 and an additional cash investment in working capital of $120,000 will be required.

The investment is expected to net $100,000 in additional cash inflows during the year of acquisition and $300,000 each additional year of use.

Income taxes are not considered in this problem. The working capital investment will not be recovered at the end of the asset's life.
