There is a 1% tolerance for errors. For example, if the correct answer is 1.00, then any number between 0.99 and 1.01 will be correct answers.
Bond Price Formula:
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.
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
