Homework 19 Solution 6.5 To solve this using the ERR method, we discount all of the negative net cash flows to the start of the project (Year 0) at the 6% MARR, compound all of the positive net cash flows to the end of the project (Time 4) at the 6% MARR, then solve for the i* that makes the two economically equivalent. There is only one negative net cash flow and it’s at Year 0: 0 P $50,000   The net cash flows in Years 1-4 are all positive, so we compound all of them to Year 4:   4 F $15,000 F| A,6%,4 $9000 $74,619  Now we simply solve for the value of i* that turns a $50,000 investment into $74,619 in four years:  4 $50,000 1 i* $74,619  4 $74,619 1 i* 1.4924 $50,000 1 4 i* 1.4924 1 0.105 10.5%  This is much closer to the 6% MARR than the IRR from the last homework, which was 13.122%. So this is still a good project but it’s not quite as good as it looked based on the IRR. 6.6 This time, the net cash flows in Years 1 and 2 are negative and the net cash flows in Years 3 and 4 are
