Question 1: In the context of present value analysis, what is the discount rate? How does the discount rate affect the present value calculation? If the present value of a future return is calculated using a discount rate of 8%, what can we expect the present value analysis to reveal if the discount rate is changed to 10%? What if the discount rate is changed to 6%? Question 2: Brass Knuckle Company wants to buy a new machine which will not increase its revenues, but that will reduce its costs by $10,000 per year. The machine will cost $60,000 and will have a useful life of nine years. At the end of the machine’s useful life, it will have no salvage value. Brass Knuckle wants an 11% rate of return. Ignoring the effects of taxes, calculate the net present value of the investment. Should Brass Knuckle make this investment? Question 3: An investment that requires a one-time payment of $12,000 will return $5,000 per year for the next four years. If the required rate of return is 11%, calculate the net present value of the investment (ignore the effect of taxes). Should this investment be made?

Option 1 is to receive an immediate cash payment of $100,000. Option 2 is to receive a payment of $10,000 per year for the next 10 years and then to receive a final payment of $100,000 in the eleventh year.
