An indium-gallium-arsenide-nitrogen alloy developed at Sandia National Laboratory is said to have potential uses in electricitygenerating solar cells. The new material is expected to have a longer life, and it is believed to have a 40% efficiency rate, which is nearly twice that of standard silicon solar cells. The useful life of a telecommunications satellite could be extended from 10 to 15 years by using the new solar cells. What rate of return could be realized if an extra investment now of $940,000 would result in extra revenues of $450,000 in year 11,$500,000 in year 12 , and amounts increasing by $50,000 per year through year 15 ? The rate of return that could be realized was %
