Solutions to Chapter 7 Net Present Value and Other Investment Criteria 15. a.r = 0% NPV = –$6,750 + $4,500 + $18,000 = $15,750 r = 50% NPV= 250 , 4 $ 50 . 1 000 , 18 $ 50 . 1 500 , 4 $ 750 , 6 $ 2 = + + - r = 100% NPV= 0 $ 00 . 2 000 , 18 $ 00 . 2 500 , 4 $ 750 , 6 $ 2 = + + - b.

Alternatively, you can compute the IRR by solving for r, using trial-and-error, in the following equation: = + + + + - 0 ) r 1 ( 500 , 8 $ r) 1 ( 500 , 7 $ 000 , 10 $ 3 2 IRR = 20.61% Since the IRR of the project is greater than the required rate of return of 12%, the project should be accepted. 17. NPV 9% = –$20,000 + [$4,000 × annuity factor(9%, 8 periods)] = 28 . 139 , 2 $ (1.09) 0.09 1 0.09 1 $4,000 $20,000 8 = × - × + NPV 14% = –$20,000 + [$4,000 × annuity factor(14%, 8 periods)] = 54 . 444 , 1 $ (1.14) 0.14 1 0.14 1 $4,000 $20,000 8 - = × - × + IRR = Discount rate (r) which is the solution to the following equation: 000 , 20 $ r) (1 r 1 r 1 $4,000 8 = + × - × r = IRR = 11.81% 7-1

[Using a financial calculatior, enter: PV = ( - )20,000; PMT = 4000; FV = 0; n = 8, and compute i.] The project will be rejected for any discount rate above this rate. 18. a.The present value of the savings is: $1,000/r r = 0.08 PV = $12,500 and NPV = –$10,000 + $12,500 = $2,500 r = 0.10 PV = $10,000 and NPV = –$10,000 + $10,000 = $0 b. IRR = 0.10 = 10% At this discount rate, NPV = $0 c.Payback period = 10 years 19. a.NPV for each of the two projects, at various discount rates, is tabulated below. NPV
