Answer #1

Question 18)

Face value F=2500

Coupon rate =7.8%

Quarterly Coupon C=7.8%*2500/4=**48.75**

**Years to maturity =1**

**Number of Coupon payments N= 1*4=4**

Current Bond Price P=3265

Let r be the Quarterly yield to maturity

P=C*(1-(1+r)^-N) + F/(1+r)^N

3265=48.75*(1-(1+r)^-4)/r + 2500/(1+r)^4

r= -4.8039%

Annual Yield =4*r=4*-4.8039%=-**19.21%**

**'**

**Question 19)**

Face value F=1000

Coupon rate =9.5%

Semi annual Coupon C=9.5%*1000/2=**47.5**

**Years to maturity =28**

**Number of Coupon payments N=28*2=56**

Current Bond Price P=838.137

Let r be the Quarterly yield to maturity

P=C*(1-(1+r)^-N) + F/(1+r)^N

838.137=47.5*(1-(1+r)^-56)/r + 1000/(1+r)^56

r=5.72%

AnnualYield =2*r=2*5.72%=**11.44%**
