Sapp Trucking's balance sheet illustrates a total of noncallable $45 million long-term debt with a coupon rate of 7.00% and a yield to maturity of 6.00%.  This debt presently has a market value of $50 million.  The balance sheet also provides that the company has 10 million shares of common stock, and the book value of the common equity (common stock plus retained earnings) is $65 million.  The current stock price is $22.50 per share; stockholders' needed return, rs, is 14.00%; and the firm's tax rate is 40%.  The CFO thinks the WACC should be based on market value weights, but the president thinks book weights are more appropriate.

What is the WACC based on the president's preference (book value weights)?
