Instructions: there will be two mandatory problems on the final exam and 9 other problems, of which you will choose 6 to be graded. The practice exam will give a flavor for the types of questions that can be asked. I will post the formula sheet for the final and practice exam later. I will go over the practice exam on wednesday in class: millennium motors has current pretax annual cash flows of ,000 and is in the 35% tax bracket.
