Suppose you purchase a zero coupon bond with a face value of \$1,000, maturing in 21 years, for \$215.15. Zero coupons pays the investor the face value of the maturity date. What is the implicit interest in the first year of the bonds life?

213.65 = 1000/(1+r)^21

r = 0.0762642376

po = 213.65
P1 = 1000/(1+0.0762642376)^20 = 229.94

implicit interest in first year =229.94 - 213.65 = 16.29

can you pay me some advance money ?

Jul 7th, 2015

I done paid someone before early and they could not get 1 answer correct and my money was lost. I use the free question just to see who can actually come up with the right answers and no one has done so yet. Give me one right answer then we can go from there about money?
