Calculate unlevered cost of equity

Please could you assist me with the following question?

Question: Company X has a cost of equity of 10%, 25% of its financing is in the form of 6% debt, the rest is shareholder's equity. Assume that the tax rate is 10%.

We are given further info i.e.

Free cash flow
Year 1 = \$20mio
Year 2 = \$40mio
Year 3 = \$50mio

Interest expense
Year 1 = \$56mio
Year 2 = \$48mio
Year 3 = \$44mio

After Year 3, the cash flows are expected to grow at a constant rate of 5%. At this time, the capital structure will stabilize at 40% debt with an interest rate of 7%

Please could you provide me with hints to calculate Company X's...

- unlevered cost of equity
- levered cost of equity and cost of capital for the post horizon period
