Bond Price Formula:

Where,
C = Periodic coupon payment,
P = Face value of bond,
r = Yield to maturity
n = Number of periods till maturity

16.Since it pays semi-annual coupons

C = (\$100 *8%)/2 =  \$4.00
r = 5% / 2 = 2.50% = 0.025
P = \$100
n = 10 *2 = 20

Substituting the values, we get:

Therefore, the bond should be trading at the price of  \$123.38.

.

17. Given:

C = \$100 * 7.5% = \$7.5
r = 11% = 0.11
n = 30 years
P = \$100

Substituting the values. we get:

Price of bond is  \$69.57
