nothing​%

​(Round to two decimal​ places.)

a.Information provided:

Par value= future value= \$1,000

Current price= present value= \$900

Time= 16 years

Coupon rate= 8%

Coupon payment= 0.08*1,000= \$80

Enter the below in a financial calculator to compute the yield to maturity:

FV= 1,000

PV= -900

PMT= 80

N= 16

Press the CPT key and I/Y to compute the yield to maturity.

The value obtained is 9.2193.

The yield to maturity is 9.22%.

b.The value of the bond is calculated by computing the present value of the bond.

Enter the below in a financial calculator to compute the present value:

FV= 1,000

PMT= 80

N= 16

I/Y= 11

Press the CPT key and PV to compute the present value.

The value obtained is 778.6251.

Therefore, the value of the bond is \$778.63.

c.I should not purchase the bond since the value of the bond is less than the market price of the bond.
