Accounting

I have to do a research paper on the finance of GameStop, and I'm having problem with the first two questions:
1. If GameStop Corp chose to issue another round of corporate bonds, how much interest rate should they offer?



2. Assume that GameStop Corp did issue corporate bonds at your determined bond interest rate. Also assume they used bonds for 30% of their 2009 capitalization. By issuing 30% of their 2009 capitalization in bonds, what difference would result in the earnings per share of common stock?

Illustrate using Excel.



I know you might not be able to tell me the answer without background information, but if anyone could tell me where to start, I'd appreciate it.
