Current price of ZCB = Redemption / (1 + 0.0549/2)^44
Current price of ZCB = 1000 / 3.292
Current price of ZCB = $303.7667
Price of ZCB after one year = Redemption / (1 + 0.0549/2)^42
Price of ZCB after one year = 1000 / 3.11852516
Price of ZCB after one year = $320.6644
3. Implied Interest = Price after one year – Current Price
Implied Interest = $320.6644– $303.7667 = $16.90
