# The rate that yields a net present value of zero for an investment is the: Zero rate of return. Internal rate of return. Accounting rate of return....

1.The rate that yields a net present value of zero for an investment is the:

A. Zero rate of return.

B. Internal rate of return.

C. Accounting rate of return.

D. Payback rate of return.

E. Net present value rate of return.

2. A company is considering a 5-year project. The company plans to invest \$60,000 now and it forecasts cash flows for each year of \$16,200. The company requires a hurdle rate of 12%. Calculate the internal rate of return to determine whether it should accept this project. Selected factors for a present value of an annuity of 1 for five years are shown below:

Interest rate Present value of an annuity of \$1 factor for year 5

10%                                                                                3.7908

12%                                                                                3.6048

14%                                                                                3.4331

a. The project should be accepted.

b. The project should be rejected because it earns less than 10%.

c. The project earns more than 10% but less than 12%. At a hurdle rate of 12%, the project should be rejected.

d. Only 9% is acceptable.

e. Only 10% is acceptable.

3. Walters manufactures a specialty food product that can currently be sold for \$21.80 per unit and has 19,800 units on hand. Alternatively, it can be further processed at a cost of \$11,800 and converted into 11,800 units of Deluxe and 5,800 units of Super. The selling price of Deluxe and Super are \$31.20 and \$19.80, respectively. The incremental net income of processing further would be:

A. \$51,360.

B. \$39,560.

C. \$17,800.

D. \$43,800.

E. \$11,800.

4. A machine costs \$184,000 and will have an eight-year life, a \$33,000 salvage value, and straight-line depreciation is used. Management estimates the machine will yield an after-tax net income of \$16,500 each year. Compute the accounting rate of return for the investment.

A. 15.2%

B. 32.6%

C. 16.5%

D. 17.9%

E. 35.9%

5.Poe Company is considering the purchase of new equipment costing \$88,500. The projected annual cash inflows are \$38,700, to be received at the end of each year. The machine has a useful life of 4 years and no salvage value. Poe requires a 10% return on its investments. The present value of an annuity of 1 and present value of an annuity for different periods is presented below. Compute the net present value of the machine.

Periods           Present value of \$1 at 10%           Present value of an annuity of \$1 at 10%

1                        0.9091                                           0.9091

2                        0.8264                                           1.7355

3                        0.7513                                           2.4869

4                        0.6830                                           3.1699

A. (\$34,175).

B. (\$20,290).

C. \$52,541.

D. \$20,290.

E. \$34,175

6.Soar Incorporated is considering eliminating its mountain bike division, which reported an operating loss for the recent year of \$2,100. The division sales for the year were \$1,041,000 and the variable costs were \$851,000. The fixed costs of the division were \$184,000. If the mountain bike division is dropped, 30% of the fixed costs allocated to that division could be eliminated. The impact on operating income for eliminating this business segment would be:

A. \$55,200 decrease

B. \$134,800 decrease

C. \$53,100 decrease

D. \$190,000 increase

E. \$190,000 decrease

7. Granfield Company has a piece of manufacturing equipment with a book value of \$39,500 and a remaining useful life of four years. At the end of the four years the equipment will have a zero salvage value. The market value of the equipment is currently \$21,900. Granfield can purchase a new machine for \$119,000 and receive \$21,900 in return for trading in its old machine. The new machine will reduce variable manufacturing costs by \$18,900 per year over the four-year life of the new machine. The total increase or decrease in net income by replacing the current machine with the new machine (ignoring the time value of money) is:

A. \$21,500 increase

B. \$75,600 decrease

C. \$17,600 decrease

D. \$51,650 increase

E. \$21,500 decrease
