Chapter 9 - SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS ASSIGNED Note to students: In problems involving the internal rate of return calculation, a financial calculator has been used. 9-2 Payback Comparisons Standard: 5 years. a. Project 1 Project 2 Year Cash Inflows Investment Balance or Cumulative Cash Flows Year Cash Inflows Investment Balance 0 -\$14,000 0 -\$21,000 1 \$3,000 \$3,000 1 \$4,000 4,000 2 \$3,000 \$6,000 2 \$4,000 8,000 3 \$3,000 \$9,000 3 \$4,000 12,000 4 \$3,000 \$12,000 4 \$4,000 16,000 5 \$3,000 \$15,000 5 \$4,000 20,000 6 \$3,000 \$18,000 6 \$4,000 24,000 7 \$3,000 \$21,000 7 \$4,000 28,000 Etc… Project 1 Payback occurs in Year 5. Exact payback period equals: = 4 + Amount Yet Needed / Next Year’s CF = 4 + (14,000-12,000) / 3,000 = 4 + 2,000/3,000 = 4.67 years Since this is less than 5 years, this is an acceptable project. However, to make our final decision, we must recognize that this is a choice between two alternatives, so a mutually exclusive investment decision. After looking at Project 2’s payback, we’ll choose the best (if at least one is acceptable). Project 2 Payback occurs in Year 6. Exact payback period equals: = 5 + Amount Yet Needed / Next Year’s CF = 5 + (21,000-20,000) / 4,000 = 5 + 1,000/4,000 = 5.25 years On its own merits, Project 2 is not acceptable since it does not pay back within 5 years.

b. If independent projects, that is, considered on their own merits, Project 1 is acceptable but Project 2 is not.

### 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.
