I tried to solve Annual Rate Return but it keeps showing wrong answer. I did 14980/171200 = 8.75
Compute the annual rate of return for each project.
Problem 26-1A (Part Level Submission)
U3 Company is considering three long-term capital investment proposals. Each investment has a useful life of 5 years. Relevant data on each project are as follows.
Project BonoProject EdgeProject ClaytonCapital investment $171,200$187,250$208,000 Annual net income: Year 114,980 19,26028,890 214,980 18,19024,610 314,980 17,12022,470 414,980 12,84013,910 514,980 9,63012,840 Total$74,900 $77,040$102,720
Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method with no salvage value. The company’s cost of capital is 15%. (Assume that cash flows occur evenly throughout the year.)
