## Solutions

We can calculate the present value of the cash inflows in several ways. We can discount each cash inflow separately at the required rate of return of 12 percent and then sum the present values. We can also find the present value of a four-year annuity of C 3 million, add to it the present value of the t 5 cash flow of C 10 million, and subtract the t 0 outflow of C 13 million. Or we can compute the present value of a five-year annuity of C 3 million, add to it the present value of a cash inflow...
