2.     What is the current yield on the bond from part a? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a % (e.g., 12.2%).
3.     Assume that you purchased the bond at the price determined in part a. It is now 2 years later and the bond is selling for $1120. What is the bond's yield to maturity at this point in time? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a percent. 
4.     Now assume that you purchased the bond at the price determined in part a and now sell the bond for $1120. Assume you receive the second year's interest payment on the sale date. What is your rate of return on this investment? You must use a financial calculator to compute this return and round your answer to the nearest tenth of a percent.
