Answer

Answer #1

Q1: Zero coupon bonds are the bonds that are issued at the discount and redeemable at the par value, the difference between the two is the yield of the investor.

Value of zero coupon bonds = Face value / ( 1 + Yield per period) ^ Number of periods

= 1000 / ( 1 + 3%/2)^8*2

= 1000 / (1.015)^16

= 1000 / 1.26898554765

**Value of zero coupon bond = 788.0310**

B) Money to be raised = Amount needed to be raised / Value of zero coupon bond

= 600,000 / 788.0310

**Number of bonds =761**
