Damage Ltd will be replacing some machines in the next year and needs to decide whether

to purchase or lease the machines. The company uses 10% as its cost of capital and has the

following information:

? Purchase price of $600,000.

? Annual running costs of $45,000 for the next five years, paid annually in arrears.

? A residual value of $220,000 at the end of the five years.

The machine could be leased for five years based upon total annual costs of $135,000 paid

annually in advance.

(b) What is the NPV of leasing the machine?hi sir how do i solve this and what is arrears? i specially dont understand the b part but need assistance in part a too
