You are evaluating two different silicon wafer milling machines. The Techron I costs $300,000, has a three-year life, and has pretax operating costs of $83,000 per year. The Techron Il costs $520,000, has a five-year life, and has pretax operating costs of $49,000 per year. For both milling machines, use straight-line depreciation to zero over the project's life and assume a salvage value of $60,000. If you tax rate is 24 percent and your discount rate is 12 percent, compute the EAC for both machines. (A negative answer should be indicated by a minus sign. Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answers to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.) Techron I Techron II
