Present value of inflows=cash inflow*Present value of discounting factor(rate%,time period)

a.Present value of inflows=2600/1.08+3500/1.08^2+2600/1.08^3

=\$7472.06

PI=Present value of inflows/Present value of outflows

=\$7472.06/\$7900

=0.946(Approx).

b.Present value of inflows=2600/1.19+3500/1.19^2+2600/1.19^3

=\$6199.33

PI=Present value of inflows/Present value of outflows

=6199.33/\$7900

=0.785(Approx).

c.Present value of inflows=2600/1.22+3500/1.22^2+2600/1.22^3

=\$5914.50

PI=Present value of inflows/Present value of outflows

=\$5914.50/\$7900

=0.749(Approx).
