Thank YOu, XXXXX XXXXX will acept yr answer, but number2 is wrong. 7.80 is marked wrong on my assigment, Can you please let e know what you rounded too or the formula you used? Thanks!!!

Expert:  Neo replied 6 years ago.
The formula I used is Risk Free Rate = Real Rate + Inflation Premium
= 6% +1.8% = 7.8%
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
The formula I have is (1+R)=(1+r)(1+h) , do you have any alternative to the answer other than 7.80% ...??
Expert:  Neo replied 6 years ago.
If this is the case, then, please try:

(1 + 0.06) / (1 + 0.018) - 1 = r
r = 4.13%
