Step 1

Net present value of a project is calculated by deducting the cost of project from the present value of cash inflows. A project is selected if it has positive net present value and vice-a-versa.

Step 2

Cost of project: $40,000

Annual cash flow: $6,250

Time: 9 years

Interest rate: 12%

a)

Present value of cash inflow is calculated as follows:

annual cash inflow Present value of inflow = xpresent value annuity factor (i%, n) = $6, 250× PVFA (12%, 9) = $6, 250×5.328 = $33, 300
