    The company's total book value of debt is $95,000,000.

    Explanation:

    1st Issue of Bonds:

    Face Value = $45,000,000

    Market Value = 95%*$45,000,000

    = $42,750,000

    Annual Coupon Rate = 6%

    Semiannual Coupon Rate = 3%

    Semiannual Coupon = 3%*$45,000,000

    = $1,350,000

    Time to Maturity = 26 years

    Semiannual Period to Maturity = 52

    Let semiannual YTM be i%

    $42,750,000 = $1,350,000*PVIFA (i%, 52) + $45,000,000*PVIF (i%, 52)

    Using financial calculator:

    N = 52

    PV = - 42750000

    PMT = 1350000

    FV = 45000000

    2nd Issue of Bonds:

    Face Value = $50,000,000

    Market Value = 54%*$50,000,000

    = $27,000,000

    Time to Maturity = 15 years

    Semiannual Period to Maturity = 30

    Let semiannual YTM be i%

    $27,000,000 = $50,000,000*PVIF (i%, 30)

    Using financial calculator:

    N = 30

    PV = - 27000000

    PMT = 0

    FV = 50000000

    Total Book Value of Debt = $45,000,000 + $50,000,000

    = $95,000,000

    Therefore, The company's total book value of debt is $95,000,000.
