You have estimated 3 possible NPV outcomes for an investment under analysis, the expected NPV, the best case NPV and the worst case NPV. You have also gotten estimates from management on the probability of each of these three cases. What do you need to do to find the expected NPV for the investment?
You have been asked by a manager in your organization to put together a training program explaining Net Present Value (NPV) and Future Value (FV) and how they are used to evaluate the price of stock. You have been given the following objectives:

A project that costs 3,000 will provide annual cash flows of $800 for each of the next 6 years. Is this project worth pursuing if the discount rate is 10%? How high can the discount rate be before you reject the project?

Look at the net present value (NPV) equation (11-1) in your text Fundamentals of Financial Management and the cash flow time line below the formula. In your own words, explain each term of the NPV equation. Explain how you would arrive at the discounted cash flows for each year represented within the time line. How does this cal
