a. What is the payback period on this project?
____ years

b. What is the net present value, assuming a 12% rate of return? Use the table provided above. Round to the nearest whole dollar.

 Net present value ______ \$

c. What else should the manager consider in the analysis?

A) Here in this problem annual earnings are equal for every year so

Pay back period = project cost / annual savings

=\$168000/\$56000 = 3 years

Intial investment recovered in 3 years

B) Npv = present value of cash in flow - Intial investment

= 5.650*\$56000 - \$168000

=\$316,400 - \$168,000 = \$148,400

C) with this analysis manager can accept the project because according to pay back period the money recovered in only 3 years

And according to NPV the project have higher positive Npv
