Davis Industries must choose between a gas-powered and an electric-powered forklift truck for moving materials in its factory. Since both forklifts perform the same function, the firm will choose only one. (They are mutually exclusive investments.) The electric-powered truck will cost more, but it will be less expensive to operate; it will cost \$21,500, whereas the gas-powered truck will cost \$17,960. The cost of capital that applies to both investments is 13%. The life for both types of truck is estimated to be 6 years, during which time the net cash flows for the electric-powered truck will be \$6,860 per year and those for the gas-powered truck will be \$4,600 per year. Annual net cash flows include depreciation expenses.

After discovering a new gold vein in the Colorado mountains, CTC Mining Corporation must decide whether to mine the deposit. The most cost-effective method of mining gold is sulfuric acid extraction, a process that results in environmental damage. Before proceeding with the extraction, CTC must spend \$900,000 for new mining equipment and pay \$165,000 for its installation. The gold mined will net the firm an estimated \$350,000 each year over the 5-year life of the vein. CTC's cost of capital is 17%. For the purposes of this problem, assume that the cash inflows occur at the end of the year.
