Question

# Good Evening, I am re-submitting this question, as the wrong answer was provided previously.

Its been in the "review" status for over 5 hours now... So I'm hoping that this works.

The following was provided to me previously and was incorrect.

a). Asked Bond Price = PV of Coupon Payment + PV of Maturity Value

= [Periodic Coupon Payment * {(1 - (1 + r)^-n) / r}] + [Face Value / (1 + r)^n]

= [{6.143%*\$1,000} * {(1 - (1 + 0.03951)^-(2037-2016)) / 0.03951}] + [\$1,000 / {1 + 0.03951}^(2037-2016)]

= [\$61.43 * {0.5568 / 0.03951}] + [\$1,000 / 2.2563]

= [\$61.43 * 14.0927] + \$443.20

= \$865.71 + \$443.20 = \$1,308.91

(0.0641/100)*\$1,000 = \$1,308.91 - Bid Price

Bid Price = \$1,308.91 - \$0.641= \$1,308.27  You ﬁnd the following Treasury bond quotes. To calculate the number of years until maturity. assume that it is currently May 2016. The bonds have a par value of \$1,000. Maturity Ask
