   c. exactly equal to the discount rate
   d. equal to zero

6. The internal rate of return is the interest rate that would

T F 4. The most accurate way to analyze the profitability of an investment is to
       compute the payback period.

T F    5. Income taxes can affect the profitability of an investment.

T F 6. The simple rate of return and the internal rate of return will be the same for
       any investment.

T F    7. The higher the interest rate the smaller the annual payment needed to
          accumulate a given amount 10 years from now.

T F    8. A person requiring only a 6 percent return could pay more for an investment
