1. Determine how much you would be willing to pay for an Annuity Due that has the following characteristics: (a) PMT: $5,500, (b) RATE: 8%, and (c) NPER: 15.

PMT=$5,500

RATE=8%

NPER=15

Type=1 annuity due

FV=0

Price can be found by using PV function in MS …

There are 4 basic problems. Solutions to these problems depict the methodology to determine PV, YTM, current yield and beta. PV and YTM are calculated by using the built-in functions in MS Excel.
