The ﬁrst increment is Alt 1 and the second one is the between the alternatives Thus we will select Alt. 2 if the difference between the desirable increment of investment. , , Since the slope of the line represents a rate of return, we see that the increment 1s ’ the slepe of the increment is greater than the slope of the 6% line that correspon _ ‘ We can see that the slope' 1s greater; hence, the increment of investment i attractiv careful examination shows that the “Difference between the alternatives” line has the , as the 30% rate of return line. We can say, therefore, that the ineremental rate of re L selecting Alt. 2 rather than Alt. 1 is 30%. This' 1s the same as was computed 111 amp ‘ coneiude that Alt. 2 is the preferred alternative.

### 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.
