ISE 310L Spring 2006 GEZA BOTTLIK MIDTERM No. 1 Solution 03/04/06 Problem No. 1 We would like to decide between two potentially profitable short term investments in our manufacturing operations. Investments are made in year zero and profits are in years 1 and 2 (15 points) The discount rate is either 15% or 20% with probabilities of 25 and 75% respectively in each of the two years. One investment has a one time cost of \$40,000 and yields income of \$30,000 per year for two years. The other costs \$40,000 and yields \$30,000 per year for the same two years. Which of the two do you prefer and why? (Show your work) Setting up clearly for one investment is sufficient – you do not need to solve. Many of you ignored the above advice and did a lot more work than necessary. Page 1 of 6

### 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.
