P6-25

Bond A
Par Value=P=\$1000
Semiannual interest=C=1000*10%/2=\$50
Number of coupon payments=n=12*2=24
Required rate of return=r=8%/2=4% per half year
Value of bond= C/r*(1-1/(1+r)^n)+P/(1+r)^n=50/4%*(1-1/(1+4%)^24)+1000/(1+4%)^24=\$1152.47

Bond B
Par Value=P=\$1000
Semiannual interest=C=1000*12%/2=\$60
Number of coupon payments=n=20*2=40
Required rate of return=r=12%/2=6% per half year
Value of bond= C/r*(1-1/(1+r)^n)+P/(1+r)^n=60/6%*(1-1/(1+6%)^40)+1000/(1+6%)^40=\$1000

Bond C
Par Value=P=\$500
Semiannual interest=C=500*12%/2=\$30
Number of coupon payments=n=5*2=10
Required rate of return=r=14%/2=7% per half year
Value of bond= C/r*(1-1/(1+r)^n)+P/(1+r)^n=30/7%*(1-1/(1+7%)^10)+500/(1+7%)^10=\$464.88

Bond D
Par Value=P=\$1000
Semiannual ...
