Last wale column me jb PV ka total krte hen tu negtive ata hai. aur humne kaha npv (229728.2) hai - brackets ka mtlb -ve hota hai. excel me jahan brackets hen uska mtlb b -ve hai

ye 229728.2 ni hy Zahra, ye (229728.2) hy .. jo amount brackets melikhi hoti hy wo actually minus me hoti hy, lekin minus ka sign book of accounts me nahi mention kerty.. uskijga brackets daal dety hy ..

u r welcome zahra. ye discussion hai he confusion dur krne klye

maham ap ny ye jo solv assignment di ha..kya ye correct ha???

i'm sorry mene msg late dekha. i'm not 100% sure about it but when sulaiman confirmed that his answer was same  i was 90% sure its correct. i had a doubt abt consultation fee and acquisition cost & i asked sir about them but i didn't get any reply. so i didn't include them as per slide # 18 lec 9 and I have uploaded my assignment already so lets c what happens. hope for the best!

Maham  thanks for sharing 

i'm sorry sir tariq for uploading the solution this way but it was the last day of submission and there was alot of confusion, though i'm still not sure its 100% correct. students should not copy it as it is, they should understand as to how it is done. they still have to write alot of formulas in it and interpret the results, not just this calculation. hope i didn't break any rules...

Hi Maham! kindly plz guide me how u find out the values of discount factor. plz tell complete process to find discount factor. thnx
