Using cost of capital to determine feasibility of a project

Calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for Apex Printing given these assumptions. Weights of 40% debt and 60% common equity, a 35% tax rate, cost of debt is 8% Beta of the company is 1.5 Risk free rate is 2% and return on the market is 11%. Indicate how these cost of capital might be used to determine the feasibility of the capital project.
