Total assets are $1000, fixed assets are $700, long-term debt is $250, and short-term debt is

$300. What is the amount of net working capital?

Current AssetsCurrent Liabilities = Working Capital

Therefore 1000-700-300= $ 0

3)

Your parents are giving you $100 a month for four years while you are in college. At a 6% discount rate, what are these payments worth to you when you first start college?

(100% – 6%) of regular earnings = 94% at this point we fill the details as follows:

0.94 X $100 = $ 94 therefore at 6% discount the earning will be $94.

$94 X 48 months = $4512

(4)The great, great grandparents of one of your classmates sold their factory to the government 104 years ago for $150,000. If these proceeds had been invested at 6%, how much would this legacy be worth today? Assume annual compounding.

When we assume compounding interest formula to calculate the worthiness of the factory after 104 years :

nt

A= P 1+ r/n

where P=principal amount, r = annual rate of interest, t = the number of years,  A = amount accumulated after n n years and n= the number of times the interest is compounded per year.

A= 4150000(1+6/1) 104

= $ 1,086,000

4 An investment project has the cash flow stream of$ -3250, $80, $200, $75, and $90. The cost of capital is 12%. What is the discounted payback period?

Discounted Payback Period = A +

B

C

Where,
A = Last period with a negative discounted cumulative cash flow;
B = Absolute value of discounted cumulative cash flow at the end of the period A;
C = Discounted cash flow during the period after A.

Therefore the discounted payback period is 3 years

5- An investment cost $12,000 with expected cash flows of $4,000 for 4 years. The discount rate is 15.2382%. The NPV is ___$634.89___ and the IRR is __12.60%____ for the project.

=-$634.89; 12.60%

7)  Thornley Machines is considering a 3-year project with an initial cost of $618,000. The project will not directly produce any sales but will reduce operating costs by $265,000 a year. The equipment is depreciated straight-line to a zero book value over the life of the project. At the end of the project the equipment will be sold for an estimated $60,000. The tax rate is 34%. The project will require $23,000 in extra inventory for spare parts and accessories. Should this project be implemented if Thornley’s requires a 9% rate of return? Why or why not?

=No; The NPV is -$2,646.00. if a project has a negative NPV, then the project is not viable and an investor is not advised to undertake the project.

8)

A project will produce operating cash flows of $45,000 a year for four years. During the life of the project, inventory will be lowered by $30,000 and accounts receivable will increase by $15,000. Accounts payable will decrease by $10,000. The project requires the purchase of equipment at an initial cost of $120,000. The equipment will be depreciated straight-line to a zero book value over the life of the project. The equipment will be salvaged at the end of the project creating a $25,000 after-tax cash flow. At the end of the project, net working capital will return to its normal level. What is the net present value of this project given a required return of 14%?

=

$27,958.66

9) What are the arithmetic and geometric average returns for a stock with annual returns of 5%, 8%, -3%, and 16%?

An arithmetic average is the sum of a series of numbers divided by the count of that series of numbers.

(0.05+0.08+-0.03+0.16)/4 =0.065

=6.5%; 9.21%

10) A year ago, you purchased 300 shares of IXC Technologies, Inc. stock at a price of $10.05 per share. The stock pays an annual dividend of $.10 per share. Today, you sold all of your shares for $29.32 per share. What is your total dollar return on this investment?

300 shares X $ 10.05 = $ 3015, the total amou.............
