Is buying capital goods viable or leasing them?

Question

1.    (a) Provide three factors that favor leasing some type of capital equipment, rather than buying it. (b) State two advantages of buying some capital goods, rather than leasing them.
2.    In answering the following questions, it is given that the potential investment has the following range of possible outcomes and probabilities: 15% probability of a   -20% return, 20% probability of a 10% return, 30% probability of a 20% return, 20% probability of a 40%, and 15% probability of a 70% return. (a) Calculate the weighted mean of the probability distribution; (b) Calculate the variance of the probability distribution; (c) Calculate the standard deviation of the probability distribution. (d) Calculate the coefficient of variation of the probability distribution. (e) Would another investment having a coefficient of variation of 0.25 have less risk per unit of expected return?

Summary

These two questions in finance deal with capital goods buying and leasing differences and calculation of probability for potential investment. While the first question deals with whether or not buying or leasing capital goods and the question deals with calculating the probability of potential investment.

    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
