P12-18 Capital rationing—IRR and NPV approaches Valley

This answer was rated:

P12-18 Capital rationing—IRR and NPV approaches Valley Corporation is attempting to select the best of a group of independent projects competing for the firm's fixed capital budget of $4.5 million. The firm recognizes that any unused portion of this budget will earn less than its 15% cost of capital, thereby resulting in a present value of inflows that is less than the initial investment. The firm has summarized, in the following table, the key data to be used in selecting the best group of projects.

Project Initial investment IRR Present value of inflows at 15%
A $5,000,000 0.17 $5,400,000
B 800,000 18 1,100,000
C 2,000,000 19 2,300,000
D 1,500,000 16 1,600,000
E 800,000 22 900,000
F 2,500,000 23 3,000,000
G 1,200,000 20 1,300,000

a. Use the internal rate of return (IRR) approach to select the best group of projects.
b. Use the net present value (NPV) approach to select the best group of projects.
c. Compare, contrast, and discuss your findings in parts a and b.
d. Which projects should the firm implement? Why?

I don't understand how project F's total investment is $2,500,000 when that is the initial investment amount and there is a 23% IRR.

Relist: Inaccurate answer.
The wrong IRR was used for project A. It should be .17% not 17%. Also I don't understand how the initial investment in project F can be the same as the total investment.
