Answers and Solutions: 11 - 5 11-4 PV = $12,000[(1/I)-(1/(I*(1+I) N )] = $12,000[(1/0.12)-(1/(0.12*(1+0.12) 8 )] = $59,611.68. Financial calculator: Find present value of future cash flows by inputting N = 8, I/YR = 12, PMT = -12000, FV = 0, then solve for PV = $59,611.68. PI = PV of future cash flows / Initial cost = $59,611.68/$52,125 = 1.14. 11-5 Year CF Cumulative CF 0 -52,125 -52,125 1 12,000 -40,125 2 12,000 -28,125 3 12,000

Because the future cash flows are identical, we can also find the payback period by dividing the cost by the cash flow: $52,125/$12,000 = 4.34....
