c. The break-even point is the point where the present value of the cash flows, including the opportunity cost of capital, yields a zero NPV. d. To find the level of costs at which the project would earn zero profit, write the equation for net profit, set net profit equal to zero, and solve for variable costs: Net Profit = (R - VC - FC - D) × (1 - t) 0 = (37.5 - VC – 3.0 – 1.5) × (0.5) VC = 33.0 This will yield zero profit. Next, find the level of costs at which the project would have zero NPV. Using the data in Table 10.1, the equivalent annual cash flow yielding a zero NPV would be: ¥15 B/PVA 10/10% = ¥2.4412 B 92 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 400 450 500 0 100 200 Units (000's) Break-Even Break-Even NPV = 0 PV Inflows PV Outflows

If we rewrite the cash flow equation and solve for the variable cost: NCF = [(R - VC - FC - D) × (1 - t)] + D 2.4412 = [(37.5 - VC – 3.0 – 1.5) × (0.5)] + 1.5 VC = 31.12
