Question

I had a quick question on the EAC Computation.

Example:-

NPV: -$284,782.49

PVIFA ( 9%,3)

EAC: -$112,504.68

Now if I happen to put the above values in the financial
calculator, PV = -$284,782.49, I/Y= 9% and N= 3

CPT Payment .

I get it as $112,504.68 ( positive)

So, it gives me a positive value instead of a negative. Now, all I
wanted to know is because this is an outgoing cost are we marking
it as negative or should it be positive?

How do we get the same value with Financial Calculator?

Answer #1

Whenever we are to calculate PV or EAC

One should be negative and other should be positive

For example we take a Loan and pay emi so in this instance eac would be negative whereas PV would be positive as it is assumed that we are taking loan i.e. cash inflow but paying emi i.e. cash outflow so everytime we need to make out our cash inflow and cash outflow

Cash inflow should be indicated with a positive sign whereas cash outflow should be indicated with a negative sign

So if we take a Loan

PV shall be positive whereas EAC should be negative

And if we invest and we would be getting return

PV should be negative indicating cash outflow and return should be marked as positive indicating cash inflow

Please Like the solution if satisfied with the answer and if any query please mention it in comments...thanks

With the NPV, we are looking for a number; whereas with the IRR,
we are looking for the return. NPV can be calculated on a financial
calculator, in excel, or by hand. NPV is very simply the present
value (PV) of Cash inflows minus the present value (PV) of Cash
outflows. Let’s look at an example. Let’s assume that you want to
consider an investment of $5,000, and you are currently making 11%
on that money. The payments that you...

below is part of the question i dont get, Aggregate demand is
suppose to be negative slope but the function is positive slope,
please explain how to interpret this,
Ive searched the internet it give me reasons why it is inverse
and downward sloping, I just dont see in the math part how I can
interpret this as negative.
Also the explicit price thing is confusing.
Assume we start from full employment (i.e. output is at
potential), with investment spending...

Question: Are decision makers risk takers or risk avoiders?
Answer: I believe that decision makers are a blend of both risk
takers and risk avoiders, however they tend to lean more one way or
another. Some great leaders can be known as risk takers, and had it
pay off well for them, and some have failed. I would say the
culture of the business has an impact as well, which can influence
the decision maker. Where...
