Project B requires an initial investment today of $130 and generates expected cash flows of $55 at the end of each of the next 5 years.

a. If you plotted the NPV profiles, what would be the “crossover rate” in the graph? (Note you are *not* asked to actually plot NPV profiles). Please make sure your supporting work shows either algebra or financial calculator input limited to the five financial time value of money keys (N, I or I/YR depending on calculator model, PV, PMT, and FV) – showing excel input or output will not earn credit.

b. What is the NPV of project A if the cost of capital is 14.0%? Please make sure your supporting work shows either algebra or financial calculator input limited to the five financial time value of money keys (N, I or I/YR depending on calculator model, PV, PMT, and FV)
