Assume that a bond will make payments every six months as shown on the following timeline​ (using six-month​ periods):

The timeline starts at Period 0 and ends at Period 30. The timeline shows a cash flow of \$ 19.86 each from Period 1 to Period 29. In Period 30, the cash flow is \$ 19.86 plus \$ 1,000.

a. What is the maturity of the bond​ (in years)? (round to two decimal places)

b. What is the coupon rate​ (as a​ percentage)? (round to two decimal places)

c. What is the face​ value? (round to two decimal places)

a. What is the maturity of the bond​ (in years)? (round to two decimal places)

The bond makes payment for every six months it means we have to divide total period by 2 to get annual years.

Thus Maturity of Bond = Total Periods / 2

Maturity of Bond = 30 / 2

Maturity of Bond = 15.00 Years

b. What is the coupon rate​ (as a​ percentage)? (round to two decimal places)

Coupon Rate = (Coupon Per Period / Face Value) * 2

Coupon Rate = (19.86 / 1000) * 2

Coupon Rate = 3.97%

c. What is the face​ value? (round to two decimal places)

Face Value will be equal to maturity value(i.e., additional payment in period 30) = \$1000.00
