Marian Plunket owns her own business and is considering an investment. If she undertakes the​ investment, it will pay \$ 5 comma 040 at the end of each of the next 3 years. The opportunity requires an initial investment of \$ 1 comma 260 plus an additional investment at the end of the second year of \$ 6 comma 300. What is the NPV of this opportunity if the interest rate is 1.9 % per​ year? Should Marian take​ it?

Initial investment= \$1,260

Cash flow in year 1= \$5,040

Cash flow in year 2= \$5,040 - \$6,300 = -\$1,260

Cash flow in year 3= \$5,040

Net present value can be solved using a financial calculator. The steps to solve on the financial calculator:

• Press the CF button.
• CF0= -\$1,260. Indicate the initial cash flow by a negative sign since it is a cash outflow.
• Cash flow for each year should be entered.
• Press Enter and down arrow after inputting each cash flow.
• After entering the last cash flow cash flow, press the NPV button and enter the interest rate of 1.9%.
• Press enter after that. Press the down arrow and CPT buttons to get the net present value.

Net present value at 1.9% interest rate is \$7,235.88.

Marian should take the investment since it generates a positive net present value.
