To determine

Compute the amount of initial investment in the project.

### Explanation of Solution

Net present value method: Net present value method is used to compare the initial cash outflow of the investment with the present value of its cash inflows. In the net present value, the interest rate is determined by the business based on the net income received from the investment. This is also called as the discounted cash flow method. The net present value is computed as follows:

NPV=(Presentvalueofcashflows)Initialcashoutflow

Calculate the present value of Cash inflows:

Presentvalueofcashinflows}=Cashinflow×3
