The trophy business requires an initial investment of \$75,000 and produces cash flows of \$25,000, \$35,000, and \$41,000 over the next three years, respectively. The golf lessons business will require a smaller investment of \$25,000 and produces cash flows of \$5,000, \$13,000, and \$18,000.

What is the IRR of the project that should be selected if interest rates are 13.28% (Hint: Draw an NPV profile)?

Since NPV of Trophy business is higher it should be selected

IRR For that project = 15.12%

Formulas will be as follows:
