The bonds mature on 1 November 2011. (PV of $1, PVA of $1, and PVAD of $1.) (Use appropriate factor(s) from the tables provided.) Required: 1. Calculate the price paid by Bertrum. (Round time value factor to 5 decimal places. Round your intermediate calculations to 2 decimal places and final answer to the nearest whole dollar amount.) 2. Construct a table that shows interest revenue reported by Bertrum, and the carrying value of the investment, for each interest period to maturity. Use the effective-interest method. (Round your answers to the nearest whole dollar amount.) 3.
