Question description

Questions

In a Word document, respond to the following. Number your responses 1–4.

  1. Explain the net present value (NPV) method for determining a capital budgeting project's desirability. What is the acceptance benchmark when using NPV?
  2. Explaint the payback period statistic. What is the acceptance benchmark when using the payback period statistic?
  3. Describe the internal rate of return (IRR) as a method for deciding the desirability of a capital budgeting project. What is the acceptance benchmark when using IRR?
  4. Describe the modified internal rate of return (MIRR) as a method for deciding the desirability of a capital budgeting project. What are MIRR's strengths and weaknesses?

Use references to support your responses as needed. Be sure to cite all references using correct APA style. Your responses should be free of grammar and spelling errors, demonstrating strong written communication skills.

Problems

In either a Word document or Excel spreadsheet, complete the following problems.
