#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

solution a:- present value of future interest payable = semi annual interest*present value annuity factor @3% for 8 years

700000*4%*7.0196=196551

present value of face value of debentures=700000* present value factor @ 3%, 8 period

700000*.789=552300

issue price of debentures= present value of principal+ present value of interest payments

552300+196551=\$748851

* answer is little different due to the rounding off errors.
