Gina when i do this with the calculater i get -0.23??
Melle I get -0.23 too, must be the right answer then....rounded
leachim By definition, NPV=0 with the IRR used as discount rate, so you do not need to do calculations
Will1868 I also get -.230 so they must have rounded to zero
janecb1 I thought of it this way, since the answer is a negative NPV, it really does not matter what is the absolute value. Since the decision rule is reject the project with NPV w. less than or equal to zero, the best answer of the four choices is the upper bound of that decision rule.
chamad -0.23 is like zero dollar
Criticull yeah, i got -0.23 and thought i was using the calc wrong. Thanks for reassuring me...
kellyyang This question does not make sense for me. you can still have negative NPV, but just reject it.
how should we round up zero.
Profache Instead of calculating the NPV, you may calculate the IRR. In this case the IRR is 11.649%, same as the discount rate of the project, therefore the NPV is zero
JeremyMartin Is required rate of return similar to IRR? The term IRR is not explicitly stated in the question? When should we assume the required rate of return is equal to the IRR?
ksnider gosh. tricky question. throws you off because it asks one thing. but really wants you to check another...
