I am getting an error for my formula for WACC. What am I doing wrong here?
need a clarification from one of the tutors here. I am getting different TOTAL DEBT answer from adding the actual numbers depicting millions vs. shortcut millions (see below). I cannot ask the tutor anymore because my comments were turned off which i dont know why.
Value of Debt = 4696.40
Weight of Debt = 21.16%
Short Term Borrowings = 560
Current Portion of Long Term Debt = 83.5
Long Term Debt = 4052.9
Total Debt = 560 + 83.5 + 4052.9 = 4696.40 million (???)
