I need help with the below problem

If there is strong expansion in the economy, then EBIT will be 10 percent higher. If there is a recession, then EBIT will be 25 percent lower. The firm is considering a debt issue of $48,000 with an interest rate of 4 percent. The proceeds will be used to repurchase shares of stock. There are currently 20,000 shares outstanding. The firm has a tax rate 35 percent. Assume the stock price remains constant.
