**Quantitative Problem:** Bellinger Industries is
considering two projects for inclusion in its capital budget, and
you have been asked to do the analysis. Both projects' after-tax
cash flows are shown on the time line below. Depreciation, salvage

are all included in these cash flows. Both projects have 4-year
lives, and they have risk characteristics similar to the firm's
average project. Bellinger's WACC is 8%.

Answer #1

**Project A**

Net present value is solved using a financial calculator. The steps to solve on the financial calculator:

- Press the CF button.
- CF0= -$1,100. It is entered with a negative sign since it is a cash outflow.
- Cash flow for all the years should be entered.
- Press Enter and down arrow after inputting each cash flow.
- After entering the last cash flow, press the NPV button and enter the weighted average cost of capital of 8%.
- Press the down arrow and CPT buttons to get the net present value.

Net Present value of cash flows at 8% weighted average cost of
capital is **$258.67.**

**Project B**

Net present value is solved using a financial calculator. The steps to solve on the financial calculator:

- Press the CF button.
- CF0= -$1,100. It is entered with a negative sign since it is a cash outflow.
- Cash flow for all the years should be entered.
- Press Enter and down arrow after inputting each cash flow.
- After entering the last cash flow, press the NPV button and enter the weighted average cost of capital of 8%.
- Press the down arrow and CPT buttons to get the net present value.

Net Present value of cash flows at 8% weighted average cost of
capital is **$282.41.**

If the projects were independent, then **both
projects** can be accepted since they have a positive net
present value.

If the projects were mutually exclusive, **project
B** is accepted since it has the highest net present
value.

In case of any query, kindly comment on the solution.
