Dixie Dynamite Company is evaluating two methods of blowing up old buildings for commercial purposes over the next five years. Method one (implosion) is relatively low in risk for this business and will carry a 11 percent discount rate. Method two (explosion) is less expensive to perform but more dangerous and will call for a higher discount rate of 15 percent. Either method will require an initial capital outlay of \$112,000. The inflows from projected business over the next five years are shown next.

Years             Method 1        Method 2

1                   \$ 32,300           \$ 19,000

2                       32,600           31,000

3                     40,900           38,300

4                         37,800         34,800

5                       21,400          72,900
