    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%

    r= 6.00% per period
