0 = ! p = " c! c2 + (1 ! " c ) ! d ! 2" c (1 ! " c ) ! c! d " 0 = (" c! c + (1 ! " c ) ! d ) !d

= 0.6
! c + ! d 0.08 + 0.12
The expected return on this portfolio is then E ( Rp ) = 0.6 ! .04 + (1 " 0.6 ) ! .06 = 0.048 = 4.8% . Therefore, the only possible value of " "c = the risk free rate such that there is no arbitrage is 4.8% since the risk free rate also has...
