ENG 106 Homework #3 Solution Winter 2010 Present Worth 5.13 Given: Four projects, each has a three-year life, i = 13%/yr EOY A B C D 0 -5000 -2000 4500 -3500 1 5800 -4400 -6000 $1000 2 12400 7000 2000 $5000 3 8200 3000 4000 $6000 a) Find: NPWs of the projects. PW A = -5000 + 5800 (P/F, 13%, 1) + 12400 (P/F, 13%, 2) + 8200 (P/F, 13%, 3) = -1800 + 600 (.8850) + 900 (.7831) + 1700 (.6931) = $15,527. PW B = $1,667. PW C = $3,529. PW D = $5,459. (PW do nothing = 0.) b) Also, which project(s) would you select if they are: - independent? Choose all with positive NPVs: A, B, C, D. - mutually exclusive and there is also a “Do Nothing” alt (with no cash flow)? Choose the most positive: A. (If they were all negative, choose the do nothing option.) - M.E. and there is no D.N. alt?? Choose the highest NPV: A. 5.29 Given: system costs include $650k initial (design & build); $100k rework every 10 yrs; a one-time $50k @EOY 5; operating costs of $30k/yr through yr 15, then $35k/yr thereafter; infinite life; i=8%/yr. Describe: why you think the stated cash flows are in constant $ or actual $. Uniform series for perpetual projects almost certainly means the estimates are in today’s (constant yr-zero) dollars. Here the rework and operating costs are the giveaways. (The jump in operating costs after year 15 is a bit of a glitch, maybe related to some component that needs annual maintenance only after that time.) We hope the interest rate is an inflation-free i’ because it is not kosher to use a market rate with constant dollars. . Find: Capitalized cost of the project. There are several correct approaches to this, all will give the same result. PWcost = $650k + $100k(A/F, 8%, 10)/0.08 + $50k(P/F, 8%, 5) + $30k(P/A, 8%, 15) + $35k(P/F, 8%, 15)/0.08 = $1,165k 5.37 Given: Two mutually exclusive projects with cash flows shown below, lives are 3 yrs for A and 2 yrs for B, projects are repeatable, i=12%/yr.
