calculate the payback for investment x and y.

Answer #1

X:

Year | Cash flows | Cumulative Cash flows |

0 | (42000) | (42000) |

1 | 15000 | (27000) |

2 | 14000 | (13000) |

3 | 10000 | (3000) |

4 | 15000 | 12000 |

5 | 20000 | 32000 |

Payback period=Last period with a negative cumulative cash flow+(Absolute value of cumulative cash flows at that period/Cash flow after that period).

=3+(3000/15000)=**3.2 years**

Y:

Year | Cash flows | Cumulative Cash flows |

0 | (42000) | (42000) |

1 | 22000 | (20000) |

2 | 15000 | (5000) |

3 | 10000 | 5000 |

Payback period=Last period with a negative cumulative cash flow+(Absolute value of cumulative cash flows at that period/Cash flow after that period).

=2+(5000/20000)=**2.5 years.**
