become available over the next three years and would like you to evaluate these projects.
They have asked that you use the NPV and IRR methods to determine if these
independent projects are acceptable. Each of these investments will occur one year apart
and the cash flows will start one year after the investment is made.

C $ 2,800.00 5 years $ 13,000.00 @t=3
D $ 2,100.00 5 years $ 15,000.00 @t=4

The company currently has 2,000,000 shares outstanding and pays a dividend of $2 per
share.
