Q13-3: What is the difference between absorption costing and ABC costing?

What is the net present value of the investment, assuming a 7% cost of capital and a 950 initial investment. What is the NPV when we change the cost of capital to 8% and have a 850 initial investment? Have a 9% cost of capital and a 825 initial investment? Or have a 6% cost of capital and a 900 initial investment?Q14:-1b: Given the cash flow in the prior question (14a) and for the $900 initial investment, what is the IRR of the cash flows?
