Problem 11 8 NPVs, IRRs and MIRRs for independent Projects Wdelman Engineering is considering including two pieces of equipment a truck and an overhead pulley system in this year's capital budget. The projects are independent. The cash outlay for the truck is \$17100 and that for the pulley system is \$22430. Project A is the truck and Project B is the pulley. The firms cost of capital is 14%. After tax cash flows including depreciation are as follows:

Year Truck Pulley
1 \$5100 \$7500
2 5100 7500
3 5100 7500
4 5100 7500
5 5100 7500

Problem 11-2 NPV and IRR Analysis. After discovering a new gold vein in the Colorado Mountains, CTC Mining Corporation must decide whether to mine the deposit. The most cost effective method o mining gold is sulfuric acid extraction a process that results in environmental damage. To go ahead with the extraction CTC must spend \$9000 for new mining equipment and pay \$165000 for its installation. The gold mined will net the firm an estimated \$350000 each year over the 5 year life of the vein. CTC's cost of capital is 17%. For the purposes of this problem assume that the cash inflows occur at the end of the year.
