Capital Budgeting Decisions
True / False Questions
1. If the internal rate of return exceeds the required rate of return for a project, then the net
present value of that project is positive.
True False
2. In comparing two investment alternatives, the difference between the net present values of
the two alternatives obtained using the total cost approach will be the same as the net present
value obtained using the incremental cost approach.
True False
3. The simple rate of return is the same as the internal rate of return.
True False
4. The internal rate of return for a project is the discount rate that makes the net present value
of the project equal to zero.
True False
5. If two projects require the same amount of investment, then the preference ranking
computed using either the project profitability index or the net present value will be the same.
True False
6. In preference decisions, the profitability index and internal rate of return methods may
produce conflicting rankings of projects.
True False
13-1
Chapter 13 - Capital Budgeting
7. The project profitability index is used to compare the internal rates of return of two
companies with different investment amounts.
True False
8. Preference decisions attempt to determine which of many alternative investment projects
would be the best for the company to accept.
True False
9. Projects with shorter payback periods are always more profitable than projects with longer
payback periods.
True False
10. One criticism of the payback method is that it ignores cash flows that occur after the
payback point has been reached.
True False
11. A very useful guide for making investment decisions is: The shorter the payback period,
the more profitable the project.
True False
12. If new equipment is replacing old equipment, any salvage received from sale of the old
equipment should not be considered in computing the payback period of the new equipment.
True False
13. The simple rate of return focuses on accounting net operating income rather than on cash
flows.
True False
13-2
Chapter 13 - Capital Budgeting
14. The simple rate of return method places its focus on cash flows instead of on accounting
net operating income.
True False
Multiple Choice Questions

0.15, then:
A. the project's internal rate of return is less than the discount rate.
B. the project's internal rate of return is greater than the discount rate.
C. the project's internal rate of return is equal to the discount rate.
D. the relation between the rate of return and the discount rate is impossible to determine from
the given data.
16. Spring Company has invested $20,000 in a project. Spring's discount rate is 12% and the

II. The project's internal rate of return is equal to 12%.
A. Only I.
B. Only II.
C. Both I and II.
D. Neither I nor II.
17. If the internal rate of return is used as the discount rate in computing net present value, the
net present value will be:
A. positive.
B. negative.
C. zero.
D. unknown.
13-3
Chapter 13 - Capital Budgeting
18. The discount rate must be specified in advance for which of the following methods?
A. Option A
B. Option B
C. Option C
D. Option D
19. An investment project for which the net present value is $300 would result in which of the
following conclusions?
A. The net present value is too small; the project should be rejected.
B. The rate of return of the investment project is greater than the required rate of return.
C. The net present value method is not suitable for evaluating this project; the internal rate of
return method should be used.
D. The investment project should only be accepted if net present value is zero; a positive net
present value indicates an error in the estimates associated with the analysis of this
investment.

working capital needed for a project?
A. Option A
B. Option B
C. Option C
D. Option D

13-4
Chapter 13 - Capital Budgeting

B. A has a lower net present value than B.
C. A and B have the same net present value.

project would provide net operating income each year as follows:
All of the above items, except for depreciation, represent cash flows. The company's required
rate of return is 12%.
Required:
a. Compute the project's net present value.
b. Compute the project's internal rate of return to the nearest whole percent.
c. Compute the project's payback period.
d. Compute the project's simple rate of return.
a. Because depreciation is the only noncash item on the income statement, the annual net cash
flow can be computed by adding back depreciation to net operating income.
b. The formula for computing the factor of the internal rate of return (IRR) is:
Factor of the IRR = Investment required Annual net cash inflow
$1,200,000 $300,000 = 4.00 Factor
To the nearest whole percent, the internal rate of return is 21%
c. The formula for the payback period is:
Payback period = Investment required Annual net cash inflow
$1,200,000 $300,000 per year = 4.0 years
d. The formula for the simple rate of return is:
Simple rate of return = Annual incremental net operating income Initial investment

The company should not license the new device, because it has a negative net present value at
a 10% discount rate.

machine that would cost $430,000 and would last for 6 years, at the end of which, the
machine would have a salvage value of $47,000. The machine would reduce labor and other
costs by $109,000 per year. Additional working capital of $4,000 would be needed
immediately, all of which would be recovered at the end of 6 years. The company requires a
minimum pretax return of 17% on all investment projects.

considering the purchase of an automated molding machine that would cost $255,552, would
have a useful life of 5 years, and would have no salvage value. The automated molding
machine would result in cash savings of $64,000 per year due to lower labor and other costs.

machine. Show your work!
Factor of the internal rate of return = Investment required Annual net cash inflow
= $255,552 $64,000 = 3.993

134. (Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Rosenholm Corporation uses a discount rate of
18% in its capital budgeting. Partial analysis of an investment in automated equipment with a
useful life of 5 years has thus far yielded a net present value of -$327,960. This analysis did
not include any estimates of the intangible benefits of automating this process nor did it
include any estimate of the salvage value of the equipment.
Required:
a. Ignoring any salvage value, how large would the additional cash flow per year from the
intangible benefits have to be to make the investment in the automated equipment financially
attractive?
b. Ignoring any cash flows from intangible benefits, how large would the salvage value of the
automated equipment have to be to make the investment in the automated equipment
financially attractive?

considering purchasing a new ride for $40,000 that would have a useful life of 10 years and a
salvage value of $4,000. The ride would require annual operating costs of $19,000 throughout
its useful life. The company's discount rate is 8%. Management is unsure about how much
additional ticket revenue the new ride would generate-particularly because customers pay a
flat fee when they enter the park that entitles them to unlimited rides. Hopefully, the presence
of the ride would attract new customers.
Required:
How much additional revenue would the ride have to generate per year to make it an
attractive investment?
Minimum annual cash flows required = Negative net present value to be offset Present
value factor
$165,638 6.710 = $24,685
This much additional revenue would result in a zero net present value. Any less than this and
the net present value would be negative. Any more than this and the net present value would
be positive.
