Price of Bond= Present Value of Inflows= 1073.60

Present value of inflows = Present value of annualcoupons Interest received + Pv of Principal repayment

PV of coupons= $515.21

Here we have to find out the present value of annuity

P=A*((1/r)-((1/(r*((1+r)^n)))

P=present value, A= Annuity r= rate of interest n=duration

A=70, r =6% n=10

PV of Principal Repayment= 558

P=present value, F= Future value r= rate of interest n=duration

P=F/(1+r)^n

Hence ...
