Question

# If a zero coupon government strip matures in one year with a yield of 2.5% (equal to 97.5609% of the \$1000

par value), with the following forward rates:

-         1-year that begins in one year at 2.8%

-         2-year that begins in one year at 2.9%

-         1-year that begins in two years at 3%

-

For this question - how would I figure out the yields for a bond (risk-free and zero coupon) that matures in two years versus one that matures in three years?

Also - how would I go about finding the current price AND the current yield-to-maturity of a risk-free bond that will mature in three years with a par value of \$1000 at a coupon rate of 10%?
