Net Present Value (NPV): It the distinction among the initial cash outflow and the present value of cash inflows. It assists in making project investment conclusion. A positive NPV means that the project should be accepted and if it is on negative swing then it should be rejected. Projects with upper NPV should be accepted in case of two mutually exclusive projects having positive net present value.
Use spreadsheet for the required computations. Enter values and formulas in the spreadsheet as shown in the image below.
the answer for the first question is $166667.
the answer for the second question is $210526
the answer for the third question is An inverse.
given information that i will invest in a $10000 scholarship that will pay forever.
the interest rate charged is 6.00% per annum therefore this is a perpetuity present value problem where there is streams of income forever therefore we use the formula :
Pv of perpetuity= Cf/r
where Cr is the cash flows payed by the single investment forever in this case $10000 then r is the interest rate of the investment amount which is 6% in this case.
Pv of Perpetuity= $10000/6%
=$166667 therefore i must invest this amount to get the scholarship running with streams of $10000 forever.
in the second problem if now the interest rate is changed from 6% to 4.75% then the amount to be invested would be :
Pv of perpetuity = $10000/4.75%
=$210526 therefore this is the amount to be invested for a forever $10000 stream of incomes for a scholarship.
the relationship is indirect cause as the interest rate decreases the present value of the perpetuity that must be invested increases.
the first one 4% is equal to 40 dollars
The net present value (NPV) of this investment is C) $10,048
Net present value (NPV) is the value of the future cash flows over the entire life of an investment discounted to the present.
The firm invests $95,000 today that will yield $109,250 in one year. The interest rates of the investment are 4%. The net present value (NPV) of this investment:
NPV = $109,250/(1+4%) - $95,000 = $10,048
