Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The value, or price, of a bond changes inversely with the direction of interest rates. At the stated coupon rate of 7.000% the bond you described is worth $10,000.00, same as the face amount. However, calculated at the current market rate of 0.000% your bond would be valued at $31,000.00, and at your desired yield of 9.000% your bond would be valued at $7,936.20.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
