compounding).

Answer #1

Present value = Future value/(1+i)^n

i = interest rate per period

n= number of periods

1)

Present value = 5000/1.08^2 + 6000/1.08^4

= 8696.87

2)

Shareholders are paid last and receive whatever is left after
paying operating expenses and debt holders.

3)

price of coupon = Coupon payment per period * [1-(1+i)^-n]/i + par value/(1+i)^n

i = interest rate per period

n = number of periods

= (680/2) * [1-(1+0.053/2)^-40]/(0.053/2) + 10000/(1+0.053/2)^40

= 11836.03
