1 1,000 7,000
2 2,000 1,000
3 6,000 1,000

I am considering 2 mutually exclusive projects. The projects have the following cash flows:
Year         X Cash Flow Y Cash Flow
0 -10,000 -8,000
1 1,000 7,000
2 2,000 1,000
3 6,000 1,000
4 6,000 1,000
At what cost of capital do the two projects have the same net present value? (That is, what is the crossover rate?)

The crossover rate is the IRR of the cash flow obtained by subtracting one set of cash flows from the other

Year         X Cash Flow Y Cash Flow Difference
0 -10,000 -8,000 -2,000
1 1,000 7,000 -6,000
2 2,000 1,000 1,000
3 6,000 1,000 5,000
4 6,000 1,000 5,000

IRR (Internal rate of return) is calculated using Excel ...
