Question: An investment costs $1, 500 at time 0. In year 1
An investment costs $1,500 at time 0. In year 1, the project will generate $250. In year 2 it will generate $500. Then, the project will generate $400 per year for three straight years. In the following year, the project is expected to be shut down and sold for a net total profit (loss) of $100.
