### Is clonidine a stimulant?

**Is clonidine a sleeping pill?**

### How can I calculate the IRR?

The IRR cannot be derived easily. The only way to calculate it by hand is through trial and error because you are trying to arrive at whatever rate which makes the NPV equal to zero. For this reason, we’ll start with calculating NPV:

**What is the IRR of a $50 investment?**

In the example below, an initial investment of $50 has a 22% IRR. That is equal to earning a 22% compound annual growth rate. When calculating IRR, expected cash flows for a project or investment are given and the NPV equals zero.

## Why is the initial IRR always negative?

The initial investment is always negative because it represents an outflow. You are spending something now and anticipating a return later. Each subsequent cash flow could be positive or negativeâ€”it depends on the estimates of what the project delivers in the future. In this case, the IRR is 56.77%.

**Why is my IRR higher than 10%?**

This means the net present value of all these cash flows (including the negative outflow) is zero and that only the 10% rate of return is earned. If the investors paid less than $463,846 for all same additional cash flows, then their IRR would be higher than 10%.
