In this example all numbers are outflow numbers, we do not have any inflow.... so if we prototype, we end up spending two type of money , one is doing it and another is if it fails we pay for it, but we do not prototype we spend one time of money... when the thing get failed.

So when you calculate this, you will realize you are spending less money in prototype so better go for it.
