Dear Student,

First of all, we don't really need Excel for these problems since the solution is pretty short.

(1) Net income = EBIT - Tax - Interest Expense, hence
3,000,000 = 6,000,000 - 0.40*6,000,000 - Interest expense, therefore
Interest expense = 6,000,000 - 2,400,000 - 3,000,000 = 600,000

(2) EBITDA is the cash flow before depreciation. Since depreciation is a non-cash expense, it doesn't affect cash flow, therefore Net Cash Flow = 3.1 million

(3) Before computing tax, we need to adjust taxable income by the interest charge and dividends received. ...
