Unformatted text preview: (Difficulty Levels: Easy, Easy/Medium, Medium, Medium/Hard, and Hard) PART I – New and Revised Carryover Problems and Questions Multiple Choice: Problems Note to Professors: We designated many of these problems as being EASY or MEDIUM. This indicates that they are not conceptually hard. However, some of them require a good bit of arithmetic, which will lengthen the time it takes students to work them. We tried to use constant cash flows, straight line depreciation (except where we wanted to illustrate MACRS depreciation), and short project lives, but illustrating the cash flow estimation process still requires a good bit of simple arithmetic. This factor should not be important for do-it-at-home tests, but it should be considered when making up timed tests. Annual operating cash flows, depr'n given Answer: a EASY 1 .

Delta Software is considering a new project whose data are shown below.

Revenues and other operating costs are expected to be constant over the project's 3-year life. What is the project's operating cash flow during Year 1? Equipment cost (depreciable basis) $75,000 Straight line depreciation rate 33.33% Sales $60,000 Operating costs excl. depr’n $25,000 Tax rate 35% a. $27,000 b. $28,500 c. $30,000 d. $31,500 e. $33,000 Ann. op. cash flows, depr'n given, interest given Answer: e EASY/MEDIUM 4 .
