These answers have the left the practical domain...

Usually NPV profiles look like this


However, sometimes they look like this (usually due to irregularities in CF, a common case is additional investment later in the project).


Good read here.

Say you are trying to minimize that wavey function. Many of the techniques Excel uses tries to "greedily" minimize, i.e., find the closest "hill" and move down it. If your initial guess is at point "A," many techniques will stop at the bottom of the valley (where the pink ball is). If you're initial guess is at point "C," you will most likely end up in the valley between "B" and "C." Of course, if you are trying to minimize that function, the valley where the pink ball is located is better than the valley between "B" and "C."

I know nothing about the IRR function or whatever, but
This is really helpful.

Can we talk about orbital mechanics or the nozzle configuration of the Saturn V F1 1st stage engines?

1. They have locked excel templates that they use.

2. It's a pre-screening excel aptitude thing for a project I'm trying to get on.

3. I found my answer here thanks to Broncosteven and jeckl15hyde and gyldenlove.

So every intention I had with this thread has been realized, thanks

I work at a college as a Janitor, even though I feel like I'm smarter than most of the people who go there. Sometimes I see an equation written on the board, like half an equation, and I just figure it out.

Hey, is that the boat on which you gave Shanny a tuna sandwich?
