Consider the accompanying data on flexural strength (MPa) for concrete beams of a certain type.

$\begin{array}{|ccccccc|}\hline 11.8& 7.7& 6.5& 6.8& 9.7& 6.8& 7.3\\ 7.9& 9.7& 8.7& 8.1& 8.5& 6.3& 7.0\\ 7.3& 7.4& 5.3& 9.0& 8.1& 11.3& 6.3\\ 7.2& 7.7& 7.8& 11.6& 10.7& 7.0\\ \hline\end{array}$

Finance bonds/dividends/loans exercises, need help or formulas

Some of the exercises, calculating the Ri is clear, but then i got stuck:

A security pays a yearly dividend of 7€ during 5 years, and on the 5th year we could sell it at a price of 75€, market rate is 19%, risk free rate 2%, beta 1,8. What would be its price today? 2.1 And if its dividend growths 1,7% each year along these 5 years-what would be its price?

A security pays a constant dividend of 0,90€ during 5 years and thereafter will be sold at 10 €, market rate 18%, risk free rate 2,5%, beta 1,55, what would be its price today?

At what price have i purchased a security if i already made a 5€ profit, and this security pays dividends as follows: first year 1,50 €, second year 2,25€, third year 3,10€ and on the 3d year i will sell it for 18€. Market rate is 8%, risk free rate 0,90%, beta=2,3.

What is the original maturity (in months) for a ZCB, face value 2500€, required rate of return 16% EAR if we paid 700€ and we bought it 6 month after the issuance, and actually we made an instant profit of 58,97€
