Most Company has an opportunity to invest in one of two new projects. Project Y requires a $305,000 investment for new machinery with a five-year life and no salvage value. Project Z requires a $305,000 investment for new machinery with a four-year life and no salvage value. The two projects yield the following predicted annual results. The company uses straight-line depreciation, and cash flows occur evenly throughout each year. (FV of $1PV of $1FVA of $1 and PVA of $1(Use appropriate factor(s) from the tables provided.)
