PQR Company

PQR Company is considering an investment in a piece of equipment that costs $25,000, has a useful life of four years, and generates annual savings net of taxes (i.e., ignore taxes for this problem) of $10,000 per year. Management uses a 14% discount rate for its minimum.
1. What is the NPV?
2. What is the Payback Period?
3. What is the Discounted Payback?
4. What is the approximate IRR?
5. What is the Profitability Index?

Here is my answer NVP which I think is incorrect. Not sure how to approach 2-5.
