Question

On October 1, White Way Stores Inc. is considering leasing a building and purchasing the necessary equipment to operate a retail store.

Life of store equipment ................16 years
Estimated residual value of store equipment ....... $ 15,000
Yearly costs to operate the store, excluding
depreciation of store equipment ............$ 58,000
Yearly expected revenues—years 1–8 ..........$ 85,000
Yearly expected revenues—years 9–16 ..........$ 73,000
