Problems

1. Two projects are proposed to a company. Project A will cost 5250,000 to implement and will have annual cash flows of \$75,000. Project B will cost \$150,000 to implement and will have annual cash flows of \$52,000. The company is very concerned about their cash flow. Using the payback period, which project is better, from a cash flow standpoint?

2. What is the average rate of return for a project that costs \$200,000 to implement and has an average annual profit of \$30,000?

3. A three-year project has net cash flows of \$20,000; \$25,000; and \$30,000 in the next three years. It will cost \$75,000 to implement the project. If the required rate of return is 0.2, what is the NPV?

4. What would happen to the NPV of the above project if the inflation rate was expected to be 7 percent in each of the next three years?
