Unformatted text preview: CHAPTER 6 1. Assume a yield to maturity of 8 percent. Compute the duration for the following bonds. Assume \$100 par values. For the 12% coupon bond, compute the duration using the two duration formulas. Which formula is easiest to compute? (a) 10 years, zero coupon (b) 10 years, 8 percent coupon (c) 10 years, 12 percent coupon YTM = 8% ; par = \$100 ; DUR = ? a. N = 10 ; C = 0 ; DUR = 10 Duration equals the maturity of 10. b.
