 Present value of principal: \$______________________________________________________________ Present value of interest: ______________________________________________________________ Selling price \$_________________________________________________________--

Ans:

Face Value : \$150,000

Interest rate : 10%

Coupon rate : 10%/ 2 = 5%

Coupon Amount : \$150,000 * 5% = \$7,500

Life of bond : 5 years

Coupon Period : 5 Years * 2 = 10 Period (Semi annually)

Market Rate : 12%

Effective Market rate : 6%

PV Factor @6% for 10 years : 1/(1.06)^10 = 0.55839

Annuity Factor @6% for 10 Years : 1/(1.06)^1 + 1/(1.06)^2 + 1/(1.06)^3 +.................. 1/(1.06)^10 : 7.36009

1.

PV of Principal : \$150,000 * 0.558394 = \$83,759.20

2.

PV of Interest : \$7,500 * 7.36009 = \$55,200.70

3.

Selling Price : \$83,759.20 + \$55,200.70 = \$138,959.90
