Mimulus has a 15% cost of capital rate, which is the minimum acceptable rate of return on the investment. Instructions (round to two decimals) a). calculate (1) the annual rate of return, and (2) the cash payback period on the proposal capital expenditure. b). using the discounted cash flow technique, calculate the net present value. Check Figures: ▪ Part (a) (1): ARR = 20% ▪ Part (a) (2): Payback = 3.33 years ▪ Part (b): NPV = \$1,694 2. calibrachoa crop. Is considering three capital expenditure projects.
