Question 1:

The market price of the 3 year bond is calculated using excel function =PV(rate, nper, pmt, fv) where

RATE = Semi annual rate = 4%/2 = 2% =0.02

NPER = 3 *2 = 6 semi annual periods

PMT = 9.4%*1000/2 = \$47

FV =1000

Market value of the bond =PV(0.02,6,47,1000) = 1,151.24

Market value of the bond =\$1,151.24 (Rounded to two decimals)
