    1)
    Scenario 1
    Suppose that that you have 2 small projects (and no others), each with its own cash flow. You could compute the NPV of each project separately, then add the NPVs together.

    Scenario 2
    Now, suppose you combine the combine the cash flows from the two small projects together into one huge project, and. You could compute the NPV of the huge project.

    The value additivity corollary says that the total NPV Scenario 1 and Scenario 2 are the same. It does ...
