I can't figure out the answer to this question: Suppose your firm has decided to use a divisional WACC approach to analyze projects. The firm currently has four divisions, A through D, with average betas for each division of 0.8, 1.2, 1.4, and 1.6, respectively. Assume all current and future projects will be financed with 20 percent debt and 80 percent equity, the current cost of equity (based on an average firm beta of 1.1 and a current risk-free rate of 7 percent) is 11 percent and the after-tax yield on the company's bonds is 12 percent.
What will the WACCs be for each division? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your final answers to 2 decimal places.)
