NPV A = & 1000 + 1000 = (1 + : 1) = & 90 : 91 NPV B = & 2000 + 1000 (1+ : 1) + 1000 (1+ : 1) 2 + 4000 (1+ : 1) 3 + 1000 (1+ : 1) 4 + 1000 (1+ : 1) 5 = +4044 : 73 NPV C = & 3000 + 1000 (1+ : 1) + 1000 (1+ : 1) 2 + 1000 (1+ : 1) 4 + 1000 (1+ : 1) 5 = +39 : 47 (b) Calculate the payback period of each project?
