Explain why this leads to g(0) > g(x), that is, if x > 0, then x − ln(1 + x) < 0. x+1 (b) Now consider the function f (x) = (1 + x)1/x for x > 0. By considering f ′ (x) and the inequality from part (a), show that f (x) is a decreasing function of x. (c) By putting x = i/t in part (b), show that (1 + i/t)t is an increasing function of t. 2 on p. 20. 11 The product symbol, n j=1 aj , is defined by n j=1 aj = a1 a2 · · · an . 43. Is it possible for the cash flows Time Cash Flow 0 C0 1 C1 2 C2 to have no IRR if the sequence C0 , C1 , C2 has exactly one sign change?

0339 is the only acceptable solution? 35. 7) then we see that this is a polynomial equation of degree 12 in (1+i). 7) to have 12 solutions! In fact, it has only one real solution that satisfies 1 + i > 0, which we show shortly. To show this, we turn to the general case, where we have the following net cash flows: 0 C0 Period Cash Flow 1 C1 2 C2 ··· ··· n−1 Cn−1 n , Cn where Ck (k = 0, 1, . . , n) are positive, negative, or zero. We let m be the number of periods per year, while n is the total number of periods.

20. 11 The product symbol, n j=1 aj , is defined by n j=1 aj = a1 a2 · · · an . 43. Is it possible for the cash flows Time Cash Flow 0 C0 1 C1 2 C2 to have no IRR if the sequence C0 , C1 , C2 has exactly one sign change? 44. Prove that the IRR Uniqueness Theorem II on p. 34 is also true if the p inequality in condition (b) is replaced with k=0 Ck (1 + i)p−k < 0. 45. Give an example of constants C0 , C1 , . . , Cn such that there is a unique i that satisfies condition (c) of the IRR Uniqueness Theorem II on p.
