Imagine you are an intern and have been invited to a meeting where two potential investment opportunities are being discussed. Project Avalon has an initial investment of $200,000, a return rate of 10%, and a revenue of $350,000. Project Green has an initial investment of $250,000, a return rate of 10%, and a revenue of $450,000. How would you expect the team to continue the comparison of the two companies?

 
 
 
 
 
 

In order to evaluate two projects with different investments and revenues, the team will also need to know more about the timing. While both projects have an immediate investment, they’ll need to know the timing of the revenue to complete their evaluations.
