Homework Answers

Answer #1

A)

Calculating Bond's equivalent yield:-

Bond's equivalent yield = [(Face value - Price)/Face value]*(360/no of days)

where,Face value = $10,000

price = $9800

no of days = 150

Bond's equivalent yield =[($10,000 - $9800)/$10000]*(360/150)

Bond's equivalent yield = 4.80%

Option 1

B). Face Value = $10,000

Calculating the Price of Bill using bid discount rate as customer wants to sell:-

Price = Face Value[1-(Bid discount Yield*no of days/360)]

Price = $10000*[1-(0.0486*90/360)]

Price = $9878.50
