Operating Cashflows

12,000 x 4.968 (discount factor) = 59,616.
NPV = 59,616 - 52,125 = 7,491
The project could be undertaken since the NPV is positive. However, one should not overlook the qualitative effects of deciding to go ahead with the project.   0 KATHRYN STEINER, MBA

Calculating Discount Factor

The discount factor is arrived from (p/a, i, n) using compound interest table, where under p/a I = 12, n=8.
Or in Excel =pv(i, n,-1) which is = pv(.12,8,-1) = 4.9676.   0 KATHRYN STEINER, MBA

Caculating Discount Factor

Right, finding the present value. Pv = fvn/(1+1)n
