Question 
Answer 
a. What is the value of the bond if the markers required yield to maturity on a comparablerisk bond is 8 percent? 
$ 


b. What is the value of the bond if the markers required yield to maturity on a comparablerisk bond increases to 11 percent?

By contrast in interest rates will cause the value to (increase/decrease): 

Also, based on the answers in part b, if the yield to maturity (current interest rate) equals the coupon interest rate, the bond will sell at (par/face value): 

exceeds the bond’s coupon rate, the bond will sell at a (discount/premium): 

and is less than the bond’s coupon rate, the bond will sell at a (discount/premium):
