Replies to This Discussion

i think project B is best because its inflow is greater than outflow after one year and inflow of project A is less than inflow in same time period.project B gives more benefits in short time period.

-8000000 + 52000000 / (1+0.11) + 61000000 /(1+0.11)2

-8000000 + 96355815

NPV= 88355815

PV= 8000000 + 88355815 = 96355815

-7200000 + 88000000 / (1+0.11) 

-7200000 + 7927928

NPV =727928

PV = 7200000 + 727928 = 7927928 

 ya theek ha???

 aaga kuch samj nai a raiii 

thnxx dear kafi hai

Plzzz full solution upload kr dy................. :)

give any main idea solution for this Graded Discussion

  1.   Above information is absolutely enough to decide about the selection from above two projects.No extra information is required.
  2. Both proposals have different lives. It is not accurate to calculate NPV in simple as Proposal B generates cash flow for one year and Proposal A Generates cash flows for two Years. Use Equivalent Annual Annuity approach (EAA) and will calculate EAA for both the proposals.As under


Proposal A:

EAA Factor = (1+i)n/(1+i)n -1= (1+.11)2/(1+.11)2-1 = 5.308

EAA = Simple NPV *EAA Factor = 16.09*5.308= 85.413 Rs


Proposal B

EAA Factor = (1+i)n/(1+i)n -1 = (1+.11)1/(1+.11)1-1 = 10.09

EAA = Simple NPV *EAA Factor = 7.27 * 10.09 = 73.360 Rs


As Project A have more EAA so Poposal A is better and can be choosen.

thanko thanko
