    -260000 this is your initial cost and is negative figure, the rest are positive figures and represent income
    -260000+44828.6+44632+40868.8+37587.60+36174.6=-55908.4
    The npv is negative so the projrct us not viable and should nit go ahead

    Payback is the time that it takes to repay the initial cost in this case 260000. Using the net cash flow we add income untill we reach 260000
    50200+56000+57400+59000=222700
    We require just a fraction (37300)of the year 5 income, therefore

    4 y +(37300/63800*12 months) =4 y and 7 months
