rate of 8 percent. If the market rate of interest is 4.0 percent
today, what is the current market price of an Crane Corporation
bond? **(Round intermediate calculations to 5 decimal
places, e.g. 1.25145 and final answer to 2 decimal places, e.g.

Answer #1

Bonds are financial instruments that provide fixed returns to their holders. Bonds actually have a nature of debt with a fixed interest rate and a maturity, also known as Plain Vanilla Bond.

The Price of a bond can be calculated as:

Where *C* denotes the Coupon Amount or 8% of $ 1,000 = $
80

*r* denotes the Yield to Maturity or 4%

*n* denotes the Time to Maturity or 13

Substituting the values, calculate the *Price*:

Thus, the current price of the Bond is **$
1,399.43**
