1. Christopher has $200,000 to invest, and he is considering the following business opportunity. He would use his $200,000 to buy a mechanical self-service car wash. He'll earn $40,000 per year from customers who drive through and use the water and soap jets to wash their cars. He'll spend $5,000 per year on maintenance and repair of that machine and $6,000 per year on supplies and utilities (water, soap, and electricity), and the car wash itself will depreciate by $7,000. That is, if he tried to sell it at the end of year, he would get only $193,000 for it. Since this car wash is self-service (drivers pay by using an automatic teller), he won't have to hire an attendant.
