10,47% RATE

To calculate the interest rate that will be indifferent between the projects to the company, we have to do the detailed:

First find a third cash flow that emerge from the substrate of one project, the cash flow of the other project, in this way we will reach a third cash flow, the difference between the projects cash flow.

Then we calculate the present value of the third cash flow, and the IRR obtained it's the interest rate indifferent between the two projects.

To verify that this is the correct rate, we can apply the present value to each cash flow project and the Present value would be the same.

Present Value Formula: CF / (1+r) ^t

CF : Cash Flow Projected

r : indifferent interest rate

t : Each Period of the project.
