A zero coupon bond has a face value of \$1,000 and matures in 4 years. Investors require a (n) 6.1% annual return on these bonds. What should be the selling price of the bond? (Round to the nearest cent)

A zero coupon bond is a bond that makes no periodic interests but it is sold at a discount from face value.

Selling price =M/(1+r)^n

where ;M=maturity value.

r=investor required anual yield /2

n=number of years till maturity

price=1000*(1+0.0305)^4=1127.6958

to the nearest cents=1127.70
