I am having difficulty finding the correct formula for calculating the yield to maturity and internal rate of return. I am not a finance major and find this very difficult

Could you do problems 6-20 and 6-38 orn give a hint on how to complete?

(See attached file for full problem description)

Here are the cash flows for two mutually exclusive projects:

Project C0 C1 C2 C3
A ($20,000) $8,000 $8,000 $8,000
B ($20,000) 0 0 $25,000

a. At what interest rates would you prefer project A to B?

Growth Enterprises believes its latest project, which will cost $80,000 to install, will generate a perpetual
growing stream of cash flows. Cash flow at the end of this year will be $5,000 and cash flows in future
years are expected to grow indefinitely at an annual rate of 5 percent.

a. If the discount rate for this project is 10 percent, what is the project NPV?

6-20 NPV is the summation of discounted cash inflows and the initial investment. The formula to use for calculating NPV is use the NPV function to get the discounted sum of cash inflows and add the initial investment to get the NPV. Using this formula the NPV profile ...

Solution Summary

The solution explains how to calculate internal rate of return and yield to maturity

A three-year bond has 8.0% coupon rate and a face value of $1000.
(A). If the yield to maturity on the bond is 10%, calculate the price of the bond assuming that the bond makes semi-annual coupon interest payments.
(B). Assuming that this bond trades for $1,112, what is the YTM for this bond assuming that the bond mak

Assume that you can buy a bond for $555 today. The bond will pay you $75 in annual coupon payments (i.e. interest payments) at the end of each of the next 12 years, plus repay the original $1000 par value of the bond at the end of the 12th year. What annual rate of return would you expect to earn on the investment (i.e., wha

A thirty year zero bond has a par value of $1000 and sells for $356.27 on the open market. The YTM of this bond is?

12% coupon bonds, with 5 yrs left to maturity, bonds make annual payments, if the bond currentyly sells for $1,107.93 what is the YTM?
so i did:
12%=$120 every year for 5 years
1,107.93=$120 x [ 1-1 / (1+r)5] /r +1000/(1+r)5 ( the five is an exponent )
yet i do not know how to find the rate of return to finish up

Using a spreadsheet program like Excel, calculate the NPV andIRR of the following scenario:
Cost (Year 0): 10,000.
Year 1 Return: 3,000.
Year 2 Return: 3,000.
Year 3 Return: 5,000.
Discount Rate: 10%.

a- What is the total future value dollar difference between reinvestment of coupons at the YTM of a bond selling at 98-5/8 with a coupon of 7% (paid semiannually) and a maturity of 12 years and the same bond with a reinvestment assumption of 6%?
b- What is the yield-to-call (YTC) for a bond with three years remaining to first

A corporate bond has a face value of $1,000, and pays a $50 coupon every six months (i.e., the bond has a 10 percent semiannual coupon). The bond matures in 12 years and sells at a price of $1,080. What is the bond's nominal yield to maturity

I'm trying to understand a formula in a CPA review book for the calculation of the yield to maturity for bonds. The formula is as follows:
YM = Annual interest payment + Principal Payment -Bond Price /
Number of years to maturity / 0.6 (Price of bond) + 0.4 (Principal payment)
The factors 0.6 and 0.4 are some type of

McCue Inc.'s bonds currently sell for $1,250. They pay a $120 annual coupon, have a 15-year maturity, and a $1,000 par value, but they can be called in 5 years at $1,050. Assume that no costs other than the call premium would be incurred to call and refund the bonds, and also assume that the yield curve is horizontal, with rat
