**a.** Compute the net present value, using a rate
of return of 20%. Use the table of present value of an annuity of
$1 presented above. If required, round to the nearest dollar. Use
the minus sign to indicate a negative net present value.

Present value of annual net cash flows | $ |

Less amount to be invested | $ |

Net present value | $ |

**b.** Based on the analysis prepared in part (a),
is the rate of return (1) more than 20%, (2) 20%, or (3) less than
20%?

**c.** Determine the internal rate of return by
computing a present value factor for an annuity of $1 and using the
table of the present value of an annuity of $1 presented
above.

Answer #1

a.NPV = present value of cash flows-Initial outlay

we will iuse annuity factor of $1 at 20% to find present value of cash flows.

As there is uniform series of cash flow each year we will use annuity

PV factor at 20% for year 10 =4.192

Present value of annual net cash flows | $125,760[$30,000*4.192] |

Less amount to be invested | $150,570 |

Net present value | -$24,810 |

Cash outflow> present value of cash inflows. So**, NPV is
-$24,810**

b.As NPV is negative a**t 20%, The rate of return is
lower than 20%.**

C. IRR is the rate at which the present value of cash inflows= Initial cash outlay.

at IRR, NPV = 0

SUppose annuity factor is X

NPV = $30,000*X-$150,570

0=$30,000X-$150,570

X=5.019

As we can see from the table at 15% annuity factor is 5.019 at year 10

**so IRR = 15%**
