Based on the cashflows for the firm then its IRR can be found to be 16.26%. With the given required return, the firm should accept project.

What is the IRR?

The IRR can be found using a Spreadsheet with the IRR function:

= 16.26%

Should the project be accepted?

The IRR rule is that if the IRR is greater than the project's required return, the firm can accept the project.

The IRR of 16.26% is greater than the required return of 11% so the firm should accept this project.
