Step 1

5) The IRR is the rate where NPV equals to zero.

Using the goal seek method, IRR is identified as 16.26%, which is greater than the required return of 11%, thus the project must be accepted.

Step 2

6. At a return of 9%, NPV is as follows:

The net present value is positive, thus the project mus...
