#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Answer(a): YTM = [C + (F-P) / n] / (F+P) / 2

Given: C = 1000*10% = \$100, F = \$1000, P = \$1000, n=10 years

Putting all the values in the formula, we get:

YTM = 10%

Answer(b): When interest rate =13%, Bond price:

Bond price = C * [[(1-(1/(1+r)n] / r ]+ F / (1+r)n

Given: C = \$100, r = 13%, F = \$1000, n = 10 years

Putting these values in the formula, we get:

Bond price = \$837.21

Answer(c): Current Yield = Annual coupon / Bond price

Current Yield: 100/837.21 = 11.94%
