1. PMP Solution 32

NPV= dicounted inflows – discounted outflows. We have 2.000.000 \$ as initial investment. We need to discount all the inflows by 10%. The formula is PV=FV/(1+discount rate)^period. So for year 1, we will have PV1=200.000/1,1^1= 181.818. For year 2, PV2=200.000/1,1^2= 165.289. For year 3, PV3=200.000/1,1^3= 150.262 .For year 4, PV4=200.000/1,1^4= 136.602. For year 5, PV5=2.300.000/1,1^5= 1.428.119. So the sum of all PVs are 2.062.090 less the initial investment (2.000.000) is 62.090 \$.
