Jiggerman ? 1. Payback = cost of project / annual cash inflows Investopedia ?Payback period? http://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/paybackperiod.asp In this case is 2.5 years. 2. IRR is the rate of return that yields an NPV = 0. ?IRR? http://www.investopedia.com/terms/i/irr.asp Sorry, but I need a spreadsheet for this one: http://www.mooneyevents.com/jiggerman.xls And the answer is 28.65% 3. The NPV discounts cash flows by an increasing amount each year based on the cost of money, which you?ve put at 15%. So after year 1, it?s Cash flow / 1.15. After year 2 it?s Cash flow / (1.15)^2. It?s easier to set up an NPV factor for these problems ? then just multiply your cash flows. We already know that NPV is positive because you have an IRR greater than 15%  but the total NPV is $34,086. Google search strategy: "payback period" IRR "internal rate of return" Best regards, OmnivorousGA

I'm impressed, too. This looks to me like an excellent answer for the price offered. If this is a four star answer, what would be required for five?
