**(10-7)
Your division is considering two investment projects, each of which requires an
up-front expenditure of $15 million. You estimate that the investments will
produce the following net cash flows:**

**Year….Project A…………. Project B
1……… $5,000,000……….. $20,000,000
2……… $10,000,000……… $10,000,000
3……… $20,000,000……… $6,000,000 **

**
a. What are the two projects’ net present values, assuming the cost of capital
is 5%, 10%, and 15%?**

**b.
what are the two projects’ IRR at these same costs of capital?**
