Calculate issue price of the bonds as on 30th June 2019.

 Particulars Amount (A) Present value factor (B) Value of the Bonds (A × B) Present value of principal $800,000 0.417265$333,812.00 Add: Present value of interest (1) $44,000 9.712249$427,338.96 Selling price of the bonds $761,150.96 Table (1) Note: The Present value of an ordinary annuity of$1 for 15 periods at 6% is 9.712249 (refer Table 4 in TVM Module). And the present value of $1 for 15 periods at 6% is 0.417265 (refer Table 3 in TVM Module). Working note (1): Calculate present value interest amount. Present value interest =Face value of bonds×Stated interest rate×Time period=$800,000×11100×612=\$44,000
