Step by Step Solution

Given Information

Coupon rate = 6%

Interest payment = Semi-annual (0.5)

Bond Price = $1000

Ask Price = 117%

Explanation on Yield to Maturity as in option ‘b’

Semi-annual coupon payment = Coupon Payment/2

= $1000 x 6% x 0.5

= $ 30

Accrued interest = Semi-annual coupon payment / 2 x Days since last coupon payment / Days separating coupon payment

= 30 x 30 /182

= $4.945

At a price of 117,

Invoice price = $1170 + $4945

= $11, 174.95
