The amount of the semiannual interest payment is $40 (=$1,000
×
0.08 / 2).
There are a
total of 40 periods; i.e., two half years in each of the twenty years in the term to maturity.
The annuity factor tables can be used to price these bonds.
The appropriate discount rate to
use is the semiannual rate.
That rate is simply the annual rate divided by two.
Thus, for
part a the rate to be used is 4.0%, for part b the rate to be used is 5% and for part c it is
3%.
