##### Solution Preview

1) Valuation - zero-coupon bond

Face Value of bond=M=$10000

Number of periods=n=8

Yield=r=3.5%

The current price of zero coupon bond=M/(1+r)^n=10000/(1+3.5%)^8 =$7594.12

2) Valuation - corporate bond

a) 6.6% market required rate of return

Maturity amount=Face Value=M=$1000

Coupon Amount=C=1000*7%/2=$35

Number of coupon payments=n=20*2=40

Semi annual required rate of return=r=6.6%/2=3.3%

Current price of the bond=C/r*(1-1/(1+r)^n)+M/(1+r)^n

=35/3.3%*(1-1/(1+3.3%)^40)+1000/(1+3.3%)^40
