Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1price of bond is present value of all interest payments and future face value at the going market rate 6month interest= 2700*0.0335 = 90.45 price = 90.45(v+v^2+v^3+...v^30) +2700*v^30 v= 1/1+i = 1/1.0305 i is half of annual rate of 6.1 v is present value of 1 dollar after 6 months sum of v+v^2+v^3+...v^30 is sum of geometric series = v*(1v^30)/(1v) = 19.474 price = 90.45*19.474 + 2700*v^30 = 2857.74
