##### Reference no: EM131355745

Data for two independent investment opportunities are shown below.

(a) For a ALARR of 8%, should either, both, or neither machine be purchased? Use the annual worth method.

(b) For a ALARR of 8%, should either, both, or neither machine be purchased? Use the present worth method.

(c) What are the payback periods for these machines? Should either, both, or neither machine be purchased, based on the payback periods? The required payback period for investments of this type is three years.
