1.

The actual cost of each machine is \$1,730,000 and total cost to be required to purchase 10 machines is \$17,300,000 (10 × \$1,730,000).

The down payment is \$6,920,000 (40% × \$17,300,000) and the loan to be required is \$10,380,000 (\$17,300,000 - \$6,920,000). The loan amount to be paid in 4 years and the annual interest rate is 12%.
