Name: ______________________________________________ Class Time: ________________________________________ FIN 445 Homework #2 The goal of this assignment is to prepare you for the exam. This assignment is due on Monday, March 8 . Please make a copy of your answers, as I will post the answers to the homework for your use as a study aid. Finally, for those of you using calculators, I do not require that you write anything down on the paper. If you want to exclusively use the calculator and only write down the answer, that is your right. However, no partial credit will be given for a wrong answer. This policy will apply to the exam as well. If I can not clearly read your work, I will assume it is wrong. “There are no stupid questions, just stupid people that ask questions.”-unknown
