Solution Preview

This question just requires careful reading and an understanding of probability. First analyze the facts about the 155 wolves.
1) We know that the brown allele is recessive, so the red allele is dominant. We can verify this because 48% of the red wolves carry the brown allelle, and yet they are still red. ...

10.15) (Risk-adjusted discount rates and risk classes) The G. Wolfe Corporation is examining two capital-budgeting projects with 5-year lives. The first, project A, is a replacement project; the second, project B, is a project unrelated to current operations. The G. Wolfe Corporation uses the risk-adjusted discount rate method and groups projects according to purpose, and then it uses a required rate of return or discount rate that has been preassigned to that purpose or risk class. The expected cash flows for these projects are given here:

Project A Project B
Initial investment -$250,000 -$400,000
Cash inflows:
Year 1 $130,000 $135,000
Year 2 40,000 135,000
Year 3 50,000 135,000
Year 4 90,000 135,000
Year 5 130,000 135,000

The purpose/risk classes and preassigned required rates of return are as follows:

Purpose Required Rate of Return
Replacement decision 12% Project A
Modification or expansion of existing product line 15
Project unrelated to current operations 18 Project B
Research and development operations 20

Determine each project's risk-adjusted net present value.
