Without doing any calculations, what is the project's IRR? |

Greater than 9%

Less than 3%

Between 3% and 9%

Answer:-1)-Accounting rate of return =(Average accounting income/Total Investment)*100

=($4600/$200000)*100

=2.3%

2)-Pay back period =Total investment/Total cash flow

=$200000/($4600+$20000)

=8.13 years

Total cash flow =Net income + Annual depreciation

Annual depreciation =(Initial investments-Salvage value)/useful life

=($200000-$20000)/9 =$20000

3)- Net present value = Present value of cash inflows – Total outflows

={($24600*6.418)+($4600*0.422) - $200000}

=($157883+$1941) - $200000

= $159824-$200000

= ($40176)

4)- Net present value = Present value of cash inflows – Total outflows

={($24600*8.530)+($4600*0.744) - $200000}

=($209838+$3422) - $200000

= $213260-$200000

= 13260

5)-The project IRR is between 3% and 9%.
