Answer #1

- All working forms part of the answer
- Answer 15

Net present value = Present values of future cash flows – Initial Investments

= (Annual Cash flows x Present Value
of Annuity for 6^{th} year at 10%) – Initial Investment

= ($ 420,000 x 4.3553) - $ 1,500,000

= $ 1,829,226 - $ 1,500,000

= $ 329,226 = Net present Value

**Correct Answer = Option ‘C’ $
329,226**

- Answer 16

Generally, if NPV is Positive the project should be accepted.

In Answer 15, NPV computed is $ 329,226 and it is POSITIVE (which means that Future discounted cash flows are MORE than initial investment).

Hence, **correct Answer = Option ‘D’ Invest in
the proposal since the NPV is $ 329,226**
