of the project cash flows for the first four years is:
Value today of Year 1 cash flow = $5,000/1.14 = $4,385.96
Value today of Year 2 cash flo

5. If we purchase the machine today, the NPV is the cost plus the present value of the increased cash
flows, so:
NPV0 = $2,900,000 + $475,000(PVIFA9%,10)
NPV0 = $148,387.41
We should not necessarily purchase the machine today. We would want to p

3. To find the book value of current assets, we use: NWC = CA CL. Rearranging to solve for current
assets, we get:
CA = NWC + CL = $800,000 + 2,400,000 = $3,200,000
The market value of current assets and net fixed assets is given, so:
Book value

each year will be:
Year 1
Year 2
