# please answer this question and give detailed

calculations step by step, thank you! Question 3
We now wish to connect the Binomial model to the continuous time equivalent
provided by Black Scholes Merton. To that end, we need to introduce a measure
of volatility as measured by the standard deviation, o.
To that end, consider the inputs r = 0.045, o = 0.24, T = 1/4 and So = \$45
and strikes X = \$40, \$45, \$50. For n = 1, 2, ..., 100 set
1. u = exp(o VT/n) and d = 1/u.
2. R = (1+r/n)T
3. q = (R - d)/(u -d)
4. q' = uq/R
5. a which is the smallest positive integer greater than
(In(So/X) + nin(d))/ In(d/u)
(10)
2
6. P[J &gt; a] and P[J' &gt; a]
7. Call option price
Co = SoP[J' &gt; a] - XR-&quot;P[J &gt; a]
(11)
Next, compare these to Black Scholes Merton prices.
