E(r)Boom = (.20  .18) + (.50  .09) + (.30  .06) = .036 + .045 + .018 = .099
E(r)Normal = (.20  .11) + (.50  .07) + (.30  .09) = .022 + .035 + .027 = .084
E(r)Bust = (.20  -.10) + (.50  .04) + (.30  .13) = -.020 + .020 + .039 = .039
E(r)Portfolio = (.20  .099) + (.70  .084) + (.10  .039) = .02376 + .0588 + .0039 =
.0825 = 8.25 percent
75. The risk-free rate of return is 4 percent and the market risk premium is 8 percent. What
