Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Initial outlay = $8,710

Payback period is the period taken to recover the initial outlay.

Hence payback period = 2 + (2370/3900 ) years

= 2.61 years


In 2 years, the project reaps $6340. Balance remaining to recover initial capital = 2370.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
