Example of Net Present Calculation

Consider the following two investments:
Investment 1 requires a cash investment of $ 10,000 today and $14,000 two years from now. One year from now this investment will yield $24,000.
Investment 2 requires a cash investment of $ 6,000 today and $1,000 two years from now. One year from now this investment will yield $8,000.
Calculate the NPV and find the better investment. What is your answer?
