**(Enter your answer as a percentage, omit the "%" sign in
your response, and enter your answer with two decimal places. For
example, 1.214% should be entered as 1.21.)**

Answer #1

FV = Future Value = $ 1,000 (assuming face value of bond is $ 1,000)

N = Term = 17 x 2 (semi-annual coupon) = 34

PV = Present Value or Price of Bond =92% of Face Value = 92% x 1000 = 920

PMT = Coupon = 7.3% x 1000 /2 = 36.5

I/Y = Yield Semi-annual = ?

Using financial calculator BA II Plus – Texas Instrument:

Input values in following sequence (all inflows in negative eg. FV and PMT):

N = 34 ; PMT = -36.5 ; PV = 920 ; FV = -1000 ; CPT > I/Y

Result: **I/Y =** **4.089718% (semi-annual
yield)**

Final Answer converting semi-annual rate in annual rate:

I/Y x 2 = 4.089718% x 2 = 8.179435%

Rounding it to two decimal places and removing % sign

Effective annual yield = =(1+4.089718%)^2-1 = 8.35%
