Answer #1

Information provided:

Par value= future value= $1,000

Coupon rate= 5.9%

Coupon payment= 0.059*1,000= $59

Time= 14 years

Market interest rate= 5.50%

The current price of the bonds is calculated by computing the present value.

Enter the below in a financial calculator to compute the present value:

FV= 1,000

PMT= 59

N= 14

I/Y= 5.50

Press the CPT key and PV to compute the present value.

The value obtained is 1,038.36.

Therefore, the current price of the bonds is
**$1,038.36.**

Hence, the answer is **option c.**
