We do not usually solve problems. We provide help so that you can solve the problem.

I have tried to clean up the question so it is legible. However, the question as posed is not clear. If the question was posed in English originally, please give the exact wording.

Suggestions.

Have you constructed a table of cash flows by year?

What discount rate seems to be appropriate?
