The premise of payback methods starts with how long it takes to recover the amount of money put into the project. It’s overall better for the payback period to be shorter in the long run. There is payback methods listed for four alternative projects related. For instance, in each project the initial outlay is $8,000. Therefore, by the end of 2015 projects one and two have recovered the initial $8,000 investment, (Finkler, S.A., Ward, D.M. & Calabrese, I.D., 2013). As a result, a payback period…
