Seth Fitch owns a small retail ice cream parlor

Accounting

Seth Fitch owns a small retail ice cream parlor. He is considering expanding the business and has identified two attractive alternatives. One involves purchasing a machine that would enable Mr. Fitch to offer frozen yogurt to customers. The machine would cost $7,920 and has an expected useful life of three years with no salvage value. Additional annual cash revenues and cash operating expenses associated with selling yogurt are expected to be $6,120 and $850, respectively.

 

Alternatively, Mr. Fitch could purchase for $9,400 the equipment necessary to serve cappuccino. That equipment has an expected useful life of four years and no salvage value. Additional annual cash revenues and cash operating expenses associated with selling cappuccino are expected to be $8,470 and $2,270, respectively.
