Calculate the price of the bond to yield an investor 6.2% compounded semi-annually. F = C = 2000 ; r = 4% 2 = 2% ; Fr = 2000 ( : 02) = 40 ; j = 6 : 2% 2 = 3 : 1% P = 40 a 10 j 3 : 1% + 2000 (1 : 031) 10 = 1813 : 29 3. Joan buys a $1000 4% bond with semi-annual coupons which is re- deemable at par in 10 years. Joan pays a price for the bond which is based on a yield to maturity of 5% compounded semi-annually. After recieving six Joan pays P = 20 a 20 j 2 : 5% + 1000 (1 : 025) 20 = 922 : 05 Joan NPV: 0 = 922 : 05 + 20 a 6 j j + 1000 (1 + j ) 6 solve for j = ) j
