in existence the longest and has the most stable sales. Division Y
has been in existence for five years and is slightly less risky
than the overall firm. Division Z is the research and development
side of the business. When allocating funds, the firm should
require the highest rate of return from division X since it has been in existence the longest.

use the firm's WACC as the cost of capital for division Z as it provides analysis for the entire firm.
use the firm's WACC as the cost of capital for divisions A and B because they are part of the revenue-producing operations of the firm.
