My deadline is this Sunday (10/2) at midnight Central time. The title of the book I am using is: Fundamentals of Financial Management, by Eugene F. Brigham & Joel F. Houston, 12th Edition

Thank you. Will post the solution before that :)

But due to a technical glitch, I have to opt out so that I am not locked from answering other posts. I will be working on the questions though
