Treat Inflation Consistently: (1 + r(nominal)) = (1 + r (real))(1 + inflation rate) Do everything in one or the other (usually it doesn't matter which you use). You cannot avoid making projections of all 3 rates--nominal, real, and inflation--and if you think you can avoid making projections of any one of them, you probably have missed something in your problem. IM&C Brealey and Myers go through a long example, IM&C, with investment, depreciation, working capital impacts, salvage values, taxes and tax shields, and so forth. Let me skip over it here; but let me urge you to spend a lot of time on it--because it is a good thing to read to try to assess what you have missed at the end of this, the first unit of the course.

    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.
