Net present value (NPV) is the method to evaluate the project feasibility. This method calculates the present value of cash inflows and outflows, and then calculates the net present value of the investment. A project should be accepted if it has a positive NPV. The formula to calculate the NPV is as follows:

NPV = Present value of cash inflows  Present value of cash out flows

To Calculate:

The Net present value of the project

Explanation

The Net present value of the project is calculated as follows:
