1. If a six-month Treasury bill is purchased for \$0.9675 on a dollar (i.e., \$96,750 for a \$100,000 bill), what is the discount yield, the annual rate of interest, and the compound rate? What will these yields be if the discount price falls to \$0.94 on a dollar (i.e., \$94,000 for a \$100,000 bill)? Discount Yield = (1-0.9675/1) x (360/181)= 0.0646 = 6.46%
