$67,000/(1 – 0.20 0.32)
$67,000 × (1 + 0.32)

You are considering the following two mutually exclusive projects. The required rate of return is
14.6 percent for project A and 13.8 percent for project B. Which project should you accept and
project A; because it has the higher required rate of return
project A; because its NPV is about $4,900 more than the NPV of
project B
project B; because it has the largest total cash inflow
project B; because it has the largest cash inflow in year one
project B; because it has the lower required return
Question 16
A project has an initial cost of $6,500. The cash inflows are $900, $2,200, $3,600, and $4,100

discount rate that equates the net cash inflows of a project to zero.
discount rate which causes the net present value of a project to equal zero.
discount rate that causes the profitability index for a project to equal zero.
Question 18
If a project has a net present value equal to zero, then:
the total of the cash inflows must equal the initial cost of the project.
the project earns a return exactly equal to the discount rate.
a decrease in the project’s initial cost will cause the project to have a negative NPV.
any delay in receiving the projected cash inflows will cause the project to have a
positive NPV.
the project’s PI must be also be equal to zero.

Question 19
Which one of the following is a project cash inflow? Ignore any tax effects.

project will not directly produce any sales but will reduce operating costs by $725,000 a year.
The tax rate is 35 percent. The project will require $45,000 of inventory which will be recouped
when the project ends. Should this project be implemented if the firm requires a 14 percent rate
of return? Why or why not?
No; The NPV is $172,937.49.
No; The NPV is $87,820.48.
Yes; The NPV is
