Hi,

Please find the answer as follows:

Part A:

Nper = 2*10 = 20 (indicates the period over which interest payments are made)

Rate = 8%/2 = 4% (indicates the rate of interest)

FV = 12000 (indicates the par value)

PMT = 12000*5% = 600 (indicates the interest payment)

PV = ? (indicates the issue price)

Issue Price = PV(Rate,Nper,PMT,FV) = PV(4%,20,600,12000) = 13630.84 or 13631

Part B:
