**Question 18**

**Quick Computing installed its previous generation of computer chip manufacturing equipment 3 years ago. Some of that older equipment will become unnecessary when the company goes into production of its new product.

**Question 34**

**Hit or Miss Sports is introducing a new product this year. If its see¬at¬night soccer balls are a hit, the firm expects to be able to sell 54,000 units a year at a price of $60 each.
