# Calculated Payback Period

The allied group is considering two investments.

The first investments involves a packaging machine, which can be used to package garments for shipping orders to customers. The second possible investment would be a molding machine that would be used to mold the mannequin parts.

The first possible investment is the packaging machine, which will cost \$1400.

The second investment the molding machine would cost \$1200. The expected cash flow for the two projects are given below and the cost of capital to the firm is 15%. Both machines will be unusable after five years and have no salvage value.

The net cash flows for the two possible projects are giving in the following table:
