(5 points) The 6 1 4 T-bond (US) of August 15, 2023, was priced on March 28, 2014 to yield 2.551% to maturity. What was the quoted price (in dollars per hundred dollars of face value)? If you had bought the bond, how much would you have been invoiced? State the quoted price in hundreds and 32nds. Note that you are required to compute the bond’s price and accrued interest both using, and not using, Excel’s PRICE() an ACCRINT() functions. Plot the price-yield relationship for the bond.
