# Assume that an investment of $1,000 produces a future cash flow of$1,000. The discount factor for this future cash flow is 0.80. The NPV is a. $0. b.$110. c. ($200). d.$911. e. None of these.

To determine

Identify NPV when the future cash flow is $1,200 and investment is of$1,000.

Explanation

Net present value:

The remaining balance of present value of a project’s inflows and outflows is known as net present value (NPV). It is a discounting model of capital investment decision. A project with a positive NPV increases the wealth of a firm whereas a project with a negative NPV decreases the wealth of a firm.

Use the following formula to calculate NPV:

NPV=Presentvalueofcashinflow(P)Presentvalueofcashoutflow(I)

Substitute $800 for P and$1,000 for I in the above formula.

NPV=$800$1,000=($200) Since net present value is ($200), c is the correct answer
