9. (Q. 13 in B) Because of its age, your car costs $4,000 annually in maintenance expense. You could replace it with a newer vehicle costing $8,000. Both vehicles would be expected to last four more years. If your opportunity cost is 8 percent, what would be the maximum annual maintenance expense on the newer vehicle to still justify its purchase?
A) $1,250 B) $1,585 C) $2,000 D) $2,415
Answer B
$8,000 = Annuity [pic] = Annuity [3.3121] = $2,415.39 When combined with the annuitized cost of the vehicle, any annual expense over $1,584.61 would place the total annual expense of the new vehicle over $4,000.

Answer A
PV = $15,000 [pic] = $15,000 [3.0373] = $45,560 and NPV = $45,560 - $40,000 = $5,560. Profitability index = $5,560 / $40,000 = 0.139.
