6 $80,000

a) Compute the payback period of this project.

b) Compute the discounted payback period of this project assuming a discount rate of 5%.

c) Would you accept this project? Explain.

d) Compute the NPV of the project. Is this a good project?

9 -50,000
10 -50,000
A) Compute the NPV of the project assuming a discount rate of 0%
B) Compute the NPV of the project assuming a discount rate of 8.02%
C) Interpret the results in a) and b)
D)If this project's risk adjusted discount rate is 6% should the project be accepted? Explain
