Can you help me get started with this assignment? I am having some difficulties.

Abel Athletics is considering purchasing new manufacturing equipment that costs $1,300,000 and is expected to improve cash flows by $500,000 in year 1, $350,000 in year 2, $475,000 in year 3, $450,000 in year 4, and $300,000 in year 5.

Key financial metrics for this capital budgeting project have been calculated and provided by the Finance department (see below). A 14% rate of return and a payback period of less than five years are required for the project. These key metrics must include (1) payback period, (2) net present value, and (3) internal rate of return. (Use 6% as the weighted average cost of capital).
