a)

Project A

Cost of project=Co=$700,000

Annual inflows=PMT=-$118,861

No. of periods=NPER=10

Rate of interest=RATE=9%

Type of payment=TYPE=0 assume year end cash flows

Future Value=FV=0

We can use PV function in MS Excel to get PV of cash inflows..

PV of cash inflows=PV=$762,809.21 =PV(C29,C28,C27,C31,C30)

NPV =-Co+PV=$62,809.21

Project B

Cost of ...
