Can anybody explain how I can get these numbers (\$111,500, \$24,750 and \$33,000 see solution)? Thanks!

HC Ltd. purchased a machine 4 years ago at a cost of \$100,000. The machine had an expected life of 10 years at the time of the purchase, and an expected market value of \$5,000 at the end of the 10 years. It is being depreciated by the straight-line method toward a salvage value of \$25,000; that is depreciation is \$7,500 per year. The machine can be sold now for \$25,000. A new machine can be purchased for \$150,000 including installation costs. During its 6-year life, it will reduce pre-tax cash operating expenses by \$30,000 per year. Sales are not expected to change. At the end of its useful life, the machine is estimated to be worth \$50,000. Straight-line depreciation will be used to depreciate the machine to salvage value of \$30,000; that is depreciation is \$20,000 per year. The firm's tax rate is 30%. The appropriate discount rate is 13%.
What is the NPV of the investment?
A. \$1,892 B. \$2,573 C. \$3,290
C
The initial investment outlay is \$111,500. The net operating cash flows are \$24,750 (years 1-6) and the total termination cash flow is \$33,000 in year 6. The NPV of these cash flows discounted at 13% is \$3,290.
