IRR Problem

Hello!

I have no significant background in math and I just started studying finance and now our professor assigned us our first problems. Mine is the one dealing with the internal rate of return (IRR). ''John takes a loan of 100 euros which he pays back after 45 days with a sum of 131. Count the IRR for the loan for a year.'' I have no doubt that for the people on this forum this problem must seem ridiculously easy. Thanks in advance!

Re: IRR Problem

Yeah and I think I've worked out a solution. 1,31^8 - 1 = 767%.

360 / 45 = 8 .... looks good!

Becomes same as: calculate future value of $100 over 8 years, at annual rate of 31%.
100(1.31^ = 867 (rounded)
