a.

Summary Introduction

To determine: Yield to maturity (YTM).

Yield to Maturity (YTM):

It refers to the rate of interest earned till the maturity of the bond by the bond holder.

### Explanation of Solution

Given,

Coupon rate is 9% or 0.09.

Selling price (value of bond) is $910.30. Par value of bond is$1,000.

Maturity is after 9 years.

Yield to maturity (YTM) can be computed through the bond value.

Formula to calculate present value of bond,

Bond'svalue=t=1NINT(1+rd

b.

Summary Introduction

To determine: Current yield and capital gain yields.

Current Yield: Current yield is the rate of return earned by the bond holders currently.

c.

Summary Introduction

To identify: Whether the actual realized yield be equivalent to the expected yields if there is a change in interest rates.
