Step by Step Solution

Given information

The reported bond price = 100: 2/32 percent of par = $1001.25

Calculation of the accrued interest for 15 days

Accrued interest for last 15 days = Annual coupon payment / 2 x Day’s since last coupon payment / Day’s separating coupon payment

= $ 35 x (15/182)

= $2.8846

Calculation of the invoice price

The invoice price = the reported price + accrued interest

= $10001.25 + $ 2.8846

= $ 1004.13
