# Econ Help if you can :P

Approximately 14 million Americans are addicted to drugs and alcohol. The federal government estimates that these addicts cost the U.S. economy \$300 billion in medical expenses and lost productivity. Despite the enormous potential market, many biotech companies have shied away from funding research and development (R&D) initiatives to find a cure for drug and alcohol addiction. Your firm – Drug Abuse Sciences (DAS) – is a notable exception. It has spent \$195 million to date working on a cure, but is now at a crossroads. It can either abandon its program or invest another \$60 million today. Unfortunately, the firm’s opportunity cost of funds is 7 percent and it will take another five years before final approval from the Federal Drug Administration is achieved and the product is actually sold. Expected (year-end) profits from selling the drug are presented in the accompanying table.

Year 1 - 0
Year 2 - 0
Year 3 - 0
Year 4 - 0
Year 5 - \$13,100,000
Year 6 - \$15,200,000
Year 7 - \$16,800,000
Year 8 - \$18,300,000
Year 9 - \$19,900,000

Find the Net Present Value Rounded to two decimal places

Work
13,100,000(1.07)^6 + 15,200,000(1.07)^7 +
16,800,000(1.07)^8 + \$18,300,000(1.07)^9 + 19,900,000(1.07)^10 - 60,000,000

The answer i got was no where close to the NPV of \$203,594,235 i believe i miscalculated somewhere
