Assignment questions Week 1 (AES case).
For the first class, please prepare your answers to the following two questions on this case 1. Calculate the cost of capital for the 15 projects around the world (shown in Exhibit 7a) using a methodology that incorporates country risk and other types of risk that arise in international investments into each project’s cost of capital.

?levered = ?unlevered/(E/C) = ?unlevered/(1-(D/C))
both ?unlevered and D/C can be obtained from exhibit 7a.

Next: U.S. T-bill+ leveraged beta (U.S. risk premium)
4.5% + ?levered * 7% = cost of capital1

Add sovereign spread:
Cost of capital1 + sovereign spread = cost of capital final

2. What is the value of the Pakistan project using the cost of capital derived from the new methodology? If this project was located in the U.S., what would its value be? Discuss the reasons for the difference in the valuations.

First:
Calculate value of levered beta:

Debt to capital = liabilities/capital =
D/C = D/(D+E)
D(D+E) = DC
D+E = C
E = C-D
E/C = 1-D/C

Second step is to calculate cost of equity:
U.S. risk free and risk premium rates, because all debt is financed in USD. U.S. T-bill+ leveraged beta (U.S. risk premium)
Pakistan: 4.5%+0.3852(7%) = 0.07196 = 7.2%
US: 4.5%+0.4132(7%) = 7.4%

Third cost of debt:
Cost of Debt = risk free + default spread
Both US and Pakistan have 3.57% default spread
Cost of debt = 4.5% + 3.57% = 8.07%

Fourth add country specific risk:
Since only Pakistan faces sovereign spread:
Soevereign spread = 9.9%
Pakistan: So the cost of equity = 7.2 + 9.9 = 17.1%
Pakistan: Cost of debt = 8.07+9.9 = 17.97%

WACC:
Pakistan:
WACC = E/V*cost of capital + D/V*cost of debt*(1-tax rate)...

Short answers
5. What two things must you normally specify in a variable declaration?
You must specify the variable type and an identifier.
int n; // type - int, identifier - n
6. What value is stored in uninitialized variables?
is a variable that is declared but is not set to a definite known value before it is used.
Algorithm workbench
3. Write assignment statements that perform the following operations with the variables a, b, and c.
a. Adds 2 to a and stores the result in b
b. Multiplies b times 4 and stores the result in a
c. Divides a by 3.14 and stores the result in b
d. Subtracts 8 from b and stores the result in a
Assignment statements that perform operations with the variables a, b, and c* (*Actually none of these operations involves the variable c at all... is this an error, or a 'trick answer'?):
b = a + 2
a = b * 4
b = a / 3.14
a = b – 8
4. Assume the variables result, w, x, y, and z are all integers, and that w = 5, x = 4, y = 8, and z = 2. What value will be stored in result in each of the following statements?
a. Set result = x + y
b. Set result = z * 2
c. Set result = y / x
d. Set result = y – z
result = x++ - y;
Answer -4
result = 4 – 8 = -4
result = ++w + y;
Answer
w = w + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
result = 6 + 8 = 14
5. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable cost so it can hold real numbers.
Declare Real price= 0.00
Display "the original price."

For our Week 2 assignment, in Intermediate Algebra, we were asked to solve the problem number 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. aside from completing the problem, we were also asked to write a two to three page paper while including the five given vocabulary words for the week. Please see the problem below:
Shipping restrictions. The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler.
a)
Write an inequality to describe this region.
b)
Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs?
c)
Will the truck hold 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs?
Kindly consider the five given vocabulary words:
Solid line
Dashed line
Parallel
Linear inequality
Test point
In order to solve the problem, we need to be aware that the formula to solve any linear equation is y=mx+b. with the said, we can say that we have our y- intercept which is 330. (The ordered pair 0,330 demonstrates that the y coordinate is 330). Since we have our y- intercept, we will now discover what our slope is. The formula to determine any slope of a line is
m=y1- y2
x1-x2
M= 330-0
0-100
After performing division and simplifying, we have found that the slope of our line is -3.
a) Write an inequality to describe this region.
The inequality to...

...Proportions

Solving Proportions
Proportions exist in the real world. For example, in finding out the price of a unit, or the population of a specific species. The first problem that we are working with states that “. Bear population. To estimate the size of the bear population on the Keweenaw Peninsula, conservationists captured, tagged, and released 50 bears. One year later, a random sample of 100 bears included only 2 tagged bears.What is the conservationist’s estimate of the size of the
bear population?(Dugolpolski, 2012)
In reading over the “Bear Population” #56 on page 437 (Dugolpolski, 2012), the concept of proportions allow the assumption that the ratio of originally tagged bears to the whole population is equal to the ratio of recaptured tagged bears to the size of the sample. The estimated solution, variables will be defined and rules for solving proportions are used.
The ratio of originally tagged bears to the whole population is 50/x.
The ratio of recaptured tagged bears to the sample size is 2/100.
50=2 This is the proportion set up and ready to solve. This is the step where we will cross multiply.
x 100 at this point. The extremes are 100 and 50. The means are x and 2
100(50)=2x
50002=2x2 Divide both sides by 2
X=2500 The bear population of Keweenaw Peninsula is estimated to be around 2500.
For the second problem of this...

a). What is YTM(i) for bond A and B? which one is highest?
Bond A: 1000 = 1001+i + 901+i2 + 80(1+i)3 + 70(1+i)4 + 60(1+i)5 + 600(1+i)5
i(A) = 0
Bond B: 1000 = 1001+i + 1001+i2 + 100(1+i)3 + 100(1+i)4 + 40(1+i)5 + 400(1+i)5
i(B) = - 0.04419415
Bond A has higher yield than Bond B. ( 0 > -0.044195)
b). Suppose i=0.05 for both bond A and B, which bond has higher price?
Bond A:
P = 1001+0.05 + 901+0.052 + 80(1+0.05)3 + 70(1+0.05)4 + 60(1+0.05)5 + 600(1+0.05)5 = $820.69
Bond B:
P = 1001+0.05 + 1001+0.052 + 100(1+0.05)3 + 100(1+0.05)4 + 40(1+0.05)5 + 400(1+0.05)5 = $699.35
c). Is there an identical i that i(t)=i(t+1)=i(t+2)=… that makes bond price for A and B identical?
1001+i + 901+i2 + 80(1+i)3 + 70(1+i)4 + 60(1+i)5 + 600(1+i)5
= 1001+i + 1001+i2 + 100(1+i)3 + 100(1+i)4 + 40(1+i)5 + 400(1+i)5
When i = 100%, both bond A and bond B have price equal to $107.50
Which bond is more risky?
If all the information is correct, bond A is more risky in year 1 to 4, and bond B is more risky at year 5 due to the CEO resign....
