how decide whether to accept or reject a project


Matt is analyzing two projects of similar size and has prepared the following data. Both projects

have 5 year lives.

                                                               Project A         Project B

   Net present value                                 $15,090             $14,693

   Payback period                                   2.76 years         2.51 years                                            

Average accounting return                     9.3%                     9.6%

     Required return                                   8.3%                       8.0%

     Required AAR                                   9.0%                       9.0%


Matt has been asked for his best recommendation about which project to choose. His recommendation should be to:

a. accept project B because it has the shortest payback period.

b. reject both projects because neither provides the required return.

c. accept project A and reject project B based on their net present values.

d. accept project B and reject project A based on their average accounting returns.

e. accept project B and reject project A based on both the payback period and the average accounting return.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
