    Price of bonds = $3,700,798.23

    Explanation:

    Explanation:

    The value of the bond is the present value (PV) of the future cash receipts expected from the bond. The value is equal to present values of interest payment plus the redemption value (RV).

    Value of Bond = PV of interest + PV of RV

    The value of bond for Splish Inc can be worked out as follows:

    Step 1

    Calculate the PV of interest payments

    Semi annual interest payment

    = 10% * 3,155,200 * 1/2 = 157,760

    PV of interest payment

    A * (1 - (1+r) ^ (-n)) / r

    r - semi-annual yield = 8%/2 = 4%

    n - 15 * 2 = 30

    = 157,760 * (1 - (1.04^ (-30) / 0.04

    = 2,727,991.17

    Step 2

    PV of redemption Value

    PV = $3,155,200 * (1.04) ^ (-30)

    = 972,807.06

    Step 3

    Price of bond

    = 2,727,991.17 + 972,807.06

    = $3,700,798.23

    Price of bonds = $3,700,798.23
