1b. With TVM formula, and table set-up:
FV = $400.00 x (1.05)5 = $400.00 x (FVIF5%,5)
FV = $17,411.00 x (1.06)30 = $17,411.00 x (FVIF6%,30)
FV = $35,000.00 x (1.10)20 = $35,000.00 x (FVIF10%,20)
FV = $26,981.75 x (1.16)15 = $26,981.75 x (FVIF16%

WACC if she borrows $1,000,000 is
WACC = 0.4 x 8.5% + 0.6 x 9.25% = 3.40% + 5.55% = 8.95%
a. WACC if she borrows $2,000,000 is
WACC = 0.2 x 8.5% + 0.375 x 9.25% + 0.425 x 17%
