HELP! Finance Professor Is DelusionalI'm going over my midterm for finals and I'm pretty sure my finance Professor has the wrong answers for two problems. He's not exactly the type of person you can have a rational conversation with, so I figure I'd ask here to see if I'm right before I challenge my grade with the department. SB's... 1 year 2 months
