    Please help! I need assistance with the following three questions in the spreadsheet attached.

    At he end of 2005, Uma Corporation was considering undertaking a major long-term project in an effort to remain competitive in its industry. The production
    and sales departments determined the potential annual cash flow savings that could accrue to he firm if it acts soon. Specifically, they estimate that a mixed stream of future
    cash flow savings will occur at the end of the years 2006 through 2011. The years 2012 through 2016 will see consecutive and equal cash flow savings at the end
    of each year. The firm estimates that its discount rate over the first 6 years will be 7%. The expected discount rate over the years 2012 through 20156 will be 11%
    The project managers will find the project acceptable if it results in present cash flow savings of at least $860,000. The following data is available to assist you:
    a) Determine the value - at the beginning of 2006 - of the future cash flow savings expected to be generated by this project.
    b) Should the firm undertake this project? Why or why not?
