Question: Answer: The question has asked for the payback period and not the discounted payback period. So, we would be calculating payback period. Payback period is th eperiod in which the project's initial cash outflows get recovered. Payback Period = A + B C Where, In the above formula, A is the last period with a negative cumulative cash flow; B is the absolute value of cumulative cash flow at the end of the period A; C is the total cash flow during the period after A Years AA Cumulative 0 -22000 -22000 1 7000 -15000 2 9000 -6000 3 15000 9000 So, payback period = 2 + |-6,000| / 15,000 = 2.40 Years. So, this is not acceptable.

Years CC Cumulative-22000-22000 1 13000-9000 2 10000 1000 3 9000 10000 Payback period = 1 + |-9,000| / 10,000 = 1.90 Years. So, this is within 2 years and so it is acceptable. So, payback project CC with payback period of 1.90 Years is the correct option. If discounted payback period is required, use the same formula on the discounted cash flows in place of gross cash flows....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
