Should the investment be accepted?

 The investment select an option shouldshould not be accepted.

Answer :- Calculation of Internal Rate of Return (IRR) :-

Initial investment = \$441,000

Net annual cash flows = \$116,529

N = 6 years

PV factor for IRR :- Initial investment/ Net annual cash flows

PV factor for IRR :- \$441,000/ \$116,529

PV factore for IRR :- 3.78446

When we see in the factor table 3.78556 falls under 15%.

Internal rate of return (IRR) = 15%

- Yes, investment should be accepted because the IRR is more than the required rate of return which is 10%.
