b. 500,000 shares of 7% preferred stock outstanding, and currently selling for $108 per share
c. 175,000 of 8.2 % semi-annual bonds outstanding, par value $1,000 each; with 15 years remaining to maturity; and currently selling for 96 % of par value.
d. The market risk premium is 6.8% and the risk free rate is 5.5%
