You are right!
I devided by total investment enstead of just income for breake even year.

How ever for P2 I then get 6-(70000/90000)= 6 - 0.77 = 5.22

What do you think?

Yeah! You're right.. my mistake on that calculation..

(Dunno if this was obvious, but I worked out that it's easiest to work out the breakeven year by subtracting the final year cash flow from the net profit... (that make sense? Beforehand, I kept on adding up until reach breakeven point...))

Time management will be important, lots of work for 80 marks.
