Have you watched our free lectures on this?
There is an outflow at time 0 of 300,000 – the PV of this is 300,000
There is an net inflow of 120,000 – 30,000 = 90,000 per year for 5 years. You discount these flows by using the 5 year annuity discount factor at 10%
There is an inflow at time 5 of the scrap proceeds of 20,000. You discount this using the ordinary 5 year discount factor at 10%.
