Please see the attached file with 5 Problems on 1 spreadsheet for 1 company. Please solve and include instructions on how to solve.

Required:
A. Compute below the payback, IRR, and NPV. For NPV use the cost of capital as the discount rate. For part A assume the revenue is \$200,000.
B. Copy the worksheet and solutions for part a to the worksheet part B, and redo the computations for a revenue of \$250,000
C. Copy the worksheet and solutions for part a to the worksheet part C, and redo the computations for a revenue of \$300,000. List the three NPVs and compute the expected NPV. Indicate whether monarch should do the project? If so why? If not why?
D. Take the IRRs calculated for the three different levels of revenue and compute the mean (expected return, standard deviation, and coefficient of variation given the probabilities for the three different IRRs. Remember you can list the IRRS based on how often they will occur, 3, 5, or 2 times out of 10.
F. Based on the results for part d, assume the discount rate to compute npv is based on the following:
