Answer #1

Debt to Equity Ratio = 0.55

This means when Debt is $ 0.55, then the equity is $ 1

Hence, total capital = Debt + Equity = 0.55 + 1 = 1.55

Weight of Debt in Total Capital = 0.55 / 1.55 = 0.3548

Weight of Equity in Total Capital = 0.55 / 1.55 = 0.65

= 0.3548 * 5.46 % * ( 1 - 0.39 ) + 0.6451 * 11.17 %

= 1.18182 % + 7.20642 %

= 8.3883 %

= 8.38 %

where CF = cash inflows and t = number of year

NPV = $ 1,550,000 / ( 1 + 0.0838)^{1} + $
1,550,000 / ( 1 + 0.0838)^{2} + $ 1,550,000 / (
1 + 0.0838)^{3} +

$ 1,550,000 / ( 1 + 0.0838)^{4} + $ 1,550,000
/ ( 1 + 0.0838)^{5} + $ 1,550,000 / ( 1 +
0.0838)^{6} +

$ 1,550,000 / ( 1 + 0.0838)^{7} - $ 7,500,000

= $ 7,963,811 - $ 7,500,000

**= $ 463,811**
