An auto plant costs $100 million to build but can produce a new line of cars that will produce cash flows with a present value of $140 million if the line is successful, but only $50 million if it is unsuccessful. You believe that the probability of success is only about 50 percent.
A) Would you build the plant?
B) Suppose that the plant can be sold for $90 million to another automaker if the auto line is not successful. Now would you build the plant?

See attached file for solution.
Investment on the plant = $100 million
Present value of cash flow if the line is successful = $140 million
Present value of cash flow if the line is unsuccessful = $50 million
Probability of success/failure=50%
