Hello! Here is that engineering assignment, look through it and let me know if you need anything! It was great working with you!

Topics:

Nominal and effective interest rates
Bond value as an example of present worth (PW)
Chapter 6: Comparison and selection amongst alternatives based on PW, AW, IRR, and
Incremental Analysis

Instructions:

For full credit, begin each calculation with an appropriate formula, show accurate
calculations and appropriate units, and clearly identify your answers. The submissions are
recommended to be computer generated. You can write mathematical equations in MS
Word and export them to pdf file. See

Please be sure your work is neat and legible, not scribbled or squeezed into the white
spaces and margins of the assignment sheet.
Answer all sub questions (if any) of a problem for full credit for that problem.

Quarterly = .06168/4 = 1.54%

What is the maximum price you will pay for a bond with a face
value of \$1,000 and a coupon rate of 14%, paid annually, if you want a yield to maturity of
10%? Assume that the bond will mature in 10 years and the first payment will be received in
one year. (See section 5.3 of t...
