Application Problem Sets

Instructions

In corporate finance, we need to deal with quantitative problems. This assignment, drawn from the course textbook, will provide practice in solving some quantitative problems. You are required to solve these problems. For each problem, you will need to provide more than a simple numerical response. Your solutions should thoroughly address the issue and present the findings in a meaningful format, similar to those developed within the chapters and as part of the review exercises solutions.
