a)The Bonds are issued at discount since the amortized cost is less than Face value of Bonds.

b)Face value of bonds = \$ 1,430,000

c) Interest payment = Face value *contract rate*n/12

where n= 6 months ,as there are 2 semiannual period in a year comprising of 6 months each.

42900 = 1430000*contract rate * 6/12

42900 = 715000* contract rate

contract rate= 42900/715000 = .06 or 6%
