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

Assume there is a 12- year, 9.5% semiannual coupon bond, with a par value of \$1000. The bond sellsy for \$1,152. A. What is the bond's yield to maturity. B. What is the bond's current yield?

Semiannual payments= 9.5%*1000/2= 47.5

bond's yield to maturity= r

1152 = 47.5/(1+r/2) + 47.5/(1+r/2)^2 + 47.5/(1+r/2)^3 +47.5/(1+r/2)^24

bond's yield to maturity = 7.55%

bond's current yield = 9.5%*1000/1152= 8.25%

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