1. a. there are 2 choices with \$2000 . First one: choose project A only Second one: choose both project B and C And compare with the NPV, choose project B and C is better since the NPV is \$230. b. If the project is mutually exclusive, I will choose project A since it has higher NPV. 2.  Firstly, convert the nominal discount rate to a real discount rate:     d = (.095-.04)/(1+.04)   = .052885 A major benefit is avoided medical care costs.  If it is assumed that the price of medical care inflates at the same rate as the general  price level, the present value can be calculated as: NPV = (-\$425,000 + \$68,000 + \$18,000) + (\$68,000 + \$18,000)/(1+.052885) 1 + (\$68,000 + \$18,000)/(1+.052885) 2 + (\$68,000 + \$18,000)/(1+.052885) 3 + (\$68,000 + \$18,000)/(1+c) 4 + (\$42,500)/(1+.052885) 5   = -339,000 + 81,680.34 +77,577.64 + 73,681.02 + 69,980.12 +  32,846.13   = -\$3,234.75 If, instead, it is assumed that the price of medical care inflates 2  percent faster than the general price level, then the net benefits  are calculated as follows: NPV = (-\$425,000 + \$68,000 + \$18,000)

### 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.
