3 part Multiple problem: Compute cash payback, net present value, and internal rate of return.

1.Compute the cash payback period. Show work and give analysis for the following:

Company F is considering purchasing new equipment for \$300,000. It is

expected that the equipment will produce annual net income of \$10,000 over its 10-year

useful life. Annual depreciation will be \$30,000.

2. Compute the net present value of each project. Show work, give analysis, and detail which project will be most acceptable for the following:

Company D is considering two different, mutually exclusive capital expenditure proposals.

(a) Project A will cost \$395,000, has an expected useful life of 10 years, a salvage value of zero, and is expected to increase net annual cash flows by \$70,000.

(b) Project B will cost \$270,000, has an expected useful life of 10 years, a salvage value of zero, and is expected to increase net annual cash flows by \$50,000. A discount rate of 9% is appropriate for both projects.

3. Compute the approximate internal rate of return. Show work and provide written analysis for the following:

DA Company is evaluating the purchase of a rebuilt spot-welding machine to be used in the manufacture of a new product. The machine will cost \$170,000, has an estimated useful life of 7 years, a salvage value of zero, and will increase net annual cash flows by \$33,740.
