(b) Since it’s not optimal to exercise a non-paying dividend American option before the expiration date, the value of the American call and the European call are equal. www.de Therefore, C=So*N(d1)-K - e rT *N(d2)=30*.66367-29* -. * / e 05 1 3 *.60956=\$2.52 The price of an American call is \$2.52. (c) N(-d1)=N(-.42252)= 0.33632 N(-d2)=N(-.2782)= 0.39043 P= K - e rT *N(-d2)- So*N(-d1) = 29* -. * / e 05 1 3 *.39043- 30*.33632=\$1.05 The price of a European put is \$1.05. (d) C-P=So-K - e rT 2.52-1.05=30-29 -. * / e 05 1 3 1.47=1.47 Since both sides are equal, put-call parity holds. Question 13.20 So=\$0.85 for 1 Canadian dollar.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
