All revenue from the contract and all expenses (except depreciation) will be received or paid in cash in the same period as recognized for accounting purposes. You are to compute the following three factors for this project:

(a) Payback period: 2.35 years
Year before full recovery (2) + Uncovered costs at start of the year(975,000-830,000)/Cash flow during the tear (415000)

(b) Return on average investment: 25.90%
Cash in flow(2,490,000) – Initial Investment(975,000 ) / life span of investment (6)/ Annual profit/initial investment x 100

(c) Net present value of the investment in this machinery, discounted at an annual rate of 12% (an annuity table shows that the present value of $1 received annually for six years discounted at 12% is 4.111): $731,065
Annual Cash Flow (415,000) x Discount Factor (4.11) – Initial Investment (975,000)
