1) A firm offers terms of 2/15, net 48. What effective annual interest rate does the firm earn when a customer does not take the discount?

The effective rate is calculated as (1+ periodic rate)^compounding frequency - 1
The periodic rate is calculated as % discount/(100-% discount) = 2/98 = 0.02041 and the compounding frequency is calculated as 365/(Payment days - discount period) = 365/(48-15) = 11.06
Effective annual rate = (1+0.02041)^11.06-1 = 25.04%

2) What is the Current Price and Yield to Maturity of a 8% semi-annual coupon bond if it has a current yield of 9.3% and matures in 10 years?

Current yield = Annual Interest/Price
Annual interest = 1,000X8% = \$80 and the current yield = 9.3%
Price = Annual interest/current yield = 80/9.3% = \$860.22
The Yield to Maturity (YTM) is the discounting rate ...
