What is the project's internal rate of return and the NPV on the following discount rates?

0%

4%

8%

12%

If I hand plotted a chart where the discount rate is on the x axis and the net present value on the y axis and plotted the NPV of the project as a function of the discount rate by dots for the 4 discount rates the curve will intersect the horizontal line at a particular discount rate. What is the discount rate at which the graph intersects the horizontal axis?
