**a.** Determine a present value factor for an
annuity of $1 which can be used in determining the internal rate of
return. If required, round your answer to three decimal places.

**b.** Using the factor determined in part (a) and
the present value of an annuity of $1 table above, determine the
internal rate of return for the proposal.

%

Answer #1

**(a)-The present value factor
for an annuity of $1 used for determining the internal rate of
return**

The present value factor for an annuity of $1 used for determining the internal rate of return = Initial Investment Cost / Annual cash inflow

= $80,620 / $20,000 per year

= 4.031

**(b)-The Internal rate of
return for the proposal.**

From the Present Value Annuity Factor Table (PVAIF Table), the discount rate (IRR) corresponding to the factor of 4.031 for 9 Years is equal to 20%

Therefore, the Internal rate of return for the proposal = 20%
