The XYZ corporation is planning to purchase an extruder at a purchase price of \$350,000. XYZ plans to make down payment of 25% of the first cost of the extruder and to make a 7 year,10% yearly payment loan for the rest of the first cost of the extruder. XYZ believes that the extruder can be sold for \$75,000 at the end of its 15 year service life. The new extruder will increase XYZ's annual income by \$90,000. Maintenance and operating costs are expected to be \$4000 during the first year and to increase by \$1200 each year. XYZ uses a before tax MARR of 12% for its preliminary economic studies. What is the before tax present worth of the extruder to XYZ?
