To calculate the price of the bond we need to calculate / read from tables the values of

PVIF= Present Value Interest Factor

PVIFA= Present Value Interest Factor for an Annuity

PVIFA( n, r%)= =[1-1/(1+r%)^n]/r%

PVIF( n, r%)= =1/(1+r%)^n

Price of bond= PVIF * Redemption value + PVIFA * interest payment per period

Price of bond

Coupon rate= 12.000%

Face value= 5000

Payment S Semi Annual

No of years to maturity= 10

No of Periods= 20

Discount rate annually= 12.00% annual

Discount rate per period= 6.00%

n= 20 periods

r= 6.00% per period

Interest payment per ...
