#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Given about a bond,

it was purchased 15 years ago,

So, years remaining to maturity = 5 years

Yield to maturity = 7.56%

Face value = \$1000

coupon rate = 9% paid semiannually,

So, semiannual coupon payment = (9%/2) of 1000 = \$45

So, price of the bond today can be calculated on financial calculator using following values:

FV = 1000

PMT = 45

N = 2*5 = 10

I/Y = 7.56/2 = 3.78

compute for PV, we get PV = -1059.04

So, current price of the bond = \$1059.04

There must be a misprinting in option D.
