Identify the cash flow for each year (each as a separate amount)
Multiply each by the appropriate discount factor for that year to find the present value of each future cash flow
Add these present values up.
Typically year 0 is the investment (a negative cash flow which doesn't need to be discounted) and each year afterwards is a positive value which you reduce by the discount rate, and the final year has an additional positive cash flow if the asset is sold and brings in a cash flow to represent the residual value.
