9.a. Suppose Dell wants to borrow £10 million for two years, Virgin wants to borrow $16 million for two years, and the current ($/£) exchange rate is $1.60. What swap transaction would accomplish this objective? Assume the counterparties would exchange principal and interest payments with no rate adjustments.

9.c. Suppose, in fact, that Dell can borrow dollars at 7% and pounds at 9% , whereas Virgin can borrow dollars at 8.75% and pounds at 9.5%. What range of interest rates would make this swap attractive to both parties?
9.d. Based on the scenario in 1.c, suppose Dell borrows dollars at 7% and Virgin borrows pounds at 9.5%. If the parties swap their current proceeds, with Dell paying 8.75% to Virgin for pounds and Virgin paying 7.75% to Dell for dollars, what are the cost savings to each party?
