Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A zero coupon bond does not pay annual interest. It should be bought at a discount such that the discount should yield an acceptable YTM to investors.

 To calculate the YTM:

(Face value of the bond/price of bond)^1/n -1,  n=years to mature

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
