Akbar Bhojani 105882655 Chapter 11 1) The reason why the capital budgeting process focuses on cash flows and not  profits is because cash flow changes the value of the firm, cash outflows reduce  the value and cash inflows increase the value. 2) Sunk costs are cash flows that have already occurred or will occur regardless of  the decision to accept or reject the project. The reason why they don’t include the  sunk cost in their calculations is because the net present value or internal rate of  return will be distorted and inaccurate which could lead to a bad decision.  3)   4) Depreciation expense is a very valuable tool for businesses, if used correctly.  The reason why the depreciation expense is a part of the incremental cash flow  analysis because increases in the depreciation expense can increase a firms  cash flow, positively.  The greater the depreciation expense the greater the tax  benefit.  PROBLEM 11-6 Rhodes Manufacturing Corporation Given: Initial Cost of new Equipment $375,000
