i)                    Payback period
a.       Undiscounted payback period

\$9,000
\$10,000
Cumulative increases in profit

\$8,000
\$17,000
\$27,000
Payback period (undiscounted) = 2 years + (\$20,000 – 17,000)/10,000 = 2.3 years (2 years, 3 ½ months).

\$7,938.32
Cumulative increases in profit (present values)

\$7,407
\$15,123

Since the net present value is positive (i.e., NPV>0), Nance restaurant should consider installing the new POS system.
