Machine B costs $45,000 to purchase and has a $0.50 manufacturing cost per unit. With an annual anticipated volume of 7,000 units. The break-even point, in years, is most nearly?

(1) An automated measurement system has an initial cost of $36,000 and annual maintenance is $2,700. after 3 years the salvage value is $9,000. if the interest rate is 10%, the equivalent uniform annual cost is most nearly.
