Please show work using Duration Equation, not excel.

Consider the following.
a. What is the duration of a four-year Treasury bond with a 8
percent semiannual coupon selling at par?
b. What is the duration of a three-year Treasury bond with a 8
percent semiannual coupon selling at par?
c. What is the duration of a two-year Treasury bond with a 8
percent semiannual coupon selling at par? (For all requirements, do
not round intermediate calculations. Round your answers to 2
decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))

Suppose that a zero coupon bond selling at $1,000 par has a
duration of four years. If interest rates increase from 6 percent
to 7 percent annually, the value of the bond will fall by what
amount using Equation 6.14? Use semiannual compounding. Then, use
the PV formula to determine the actual price of the bond at 7
percent. What is the difference? Why is there a difference?

Calculate the duration of a 2-year bond with 8% semiannual
coupon selling at par
if interest rate decreases by 1 percentage point,by how much
will the price of the bond change, based on the Duration model?

What the Approximate Duration of 20 year bond, making semiannual
coupon payments, with a coupon rate of 5and a current price of
70.31 per 100 of par value, considering a 50 bps change in the
discount rate?

a. What is the duration of a two-year bond that pays an annual
coupon of 11.2 percent and has a current yield to maturity of 13.2
percent? Use $1,000 as the face value. (Do not round intermediate
calculations. Round your answer to 4 decimal places. (e.g.,
32.1616)) b. What is the duration of a two-year zero-coupon bond
that is yielding 11.5 percent? Use $1,000 as the face value.
*please show using financial calculator if possible*

Assume that a $1,000,000 par value, semiannual coupon U.S.
Treasury bond with three years to maturity (YTM) has a coupon rate
of 6%. The yield to maturity of the bond is 11.0%. Using this
information and ignoring the other costs involved, calculate the
value of the Treasury bond.
Please show your calculations.
