    ClearDebt Inc., is a firm with all-equity financing. Its equity beta is .80. The Treasury bill rate is 4 percent, and the market risk premium is expected to be 10 percent. What is ClearDebt's asset beta? What is ClearDebt's weighted-average cost of capital? The firm is exempt from paying taxes.

    I have several problems like this and no template or examples to follow.
    Can you help with this problem?

    Thanks!!
