    a. p1-year5(50+100+200+200+300=850), p2-year3(300+300+200=800)b. p1-year6(44.64+79.72+142.36+127.1+170.23+151.99=716.04)   p2-year5(267.86+239.16+142.36+127.1+56.74=833.22)c. p1-716.04   p2-858.55d. p1-13%   p2-15%e. this question doesn't tell the reinvestment rate....can't   calculate MIRRf. Which project should be accepted? An:P2   Why can only one project be accepted?    An: Because this is a   mutual exclusive project, the firm can only choose one project of two which is worth to invest. The reason might be the firm only has a constant fund or constant resources to invest only one project. Which method a-d did you base your decision on? Why?,  An: Any method out of a-d all pointed that P2 is worth to invest, P2 has earlier payback period and discounted payback period, higher NPV and higher IRR.                                  P1              P2a.pay back period                 Y5              Y3               b.discounted payback period       Y6              Y5c.NPV                            716.04         858.55d.IRR                             13%             15%

    In some definitions of MIRR, they assume that reinvestment is the cost of capital (wacc in this case).

    a. 4.5yrs 3yrs

    c. 16.04 58.55

    d. 12.63% 15.29%

    e. 12.42% 13.33%

    f.projuct B. You can only choose one becasue of mutually exclusive projects. NPV is better for choosing among competing projects because it provides a better indicator of how much each project will increase the value of the firm.
