1. Because the company’s cash is limited, Andrews thinks the payback method should be used to choose between the capital budgeting projects. What are the benefits and limitations of using the payback method to choose between projects?

2. Calculate the payback period for each of the three projects. Ignore income taxes. Using the payback method, which projects should Andrews choose?

3. Bart thinks that projects should be selected based on their NPVs. Assume all cash flows occur at the end of the year except for initial investment amounts. Calculate the NPV for each project. Ignore income taxes.

4. Which projects, if any, would you recommend funding? Briefly explain why.
