1- You are considering the purchase of a $1,000 par value bond with an 6.5% coupon rate (with interest paid semiannually) that matures in 12 years. If the bond is priced to provide a required return of 8%, what is the bond’s current price?

2- Two bonds have par values of $1,000. One is a 5%, 15-year bond priced to yield 8%. The other is a 7.5%, 20-year bond priced to yield 6%. Which of these has the lower price? (Assume annual compounding in both cases.)

3- Three years ago you purchased a 10% coupon bond that pays semiannual coupon payments for $975. What would be your bond equivalent yield if you sold the bond for current market price of $1,050?
