    1. Dandy Product's overall weighted average required rate of return is 10%. Its yogurt division is riskier than average, its fresh produce division has average risk, and its institutional foods division has below-average risk. Dandy adjusts for both divisional and project risk by adding or subtracting 2% points. Thus, the maximum adjustment is 4% points. What is the risk-adjusted required rate of return for a low-risk project in the yogurt division?

    2. As the director of capital budgeting for Denver Corporation, you are evaluating two mutually exclusive projects with the following net cash flows:

    2 40,000 30,000
    3 30,000 40,000
