A company wants to buy a laborsaving piece of equipment. Using the NPV method of capital budgeting, determine the proposal's appropriateness and economic viability with the following information:
Labor content is 12% of sales, which are annually $10 million.
The new equipment will save 20% of labor annually.
The new equipment will last 5 years.
The new equipment will cost $200,000.
The discount rate is 10%

I have this same problem. I just cannot figure out if the labor content is needed to calculate the NPV. Any ideas?
