Answer #1

- Price of Bond today(rate at which it can be sold) = $21,300

Maturity Value of Bond = $30,000

No of years to maturity from today(n) = 15 years - 7 years = 8 years

Calculating the Annual rate of Return from today:-

Annual rate of Return from today

Annual rate of Return from today = 1.04374 - 1

**Annual rate of Return from today = 4.37%**
