 2.       John and Daphne are saving for their daughter Ellen’s college education.  Ellen just turned 10 at (t = 0), and she will be entering  college 8 years from now (at t = 8).  College tuition and expenses at State U. are currently $14,500 a year, but they are expected to increase at a rate of 3.5% a year.  Ellen should graduate in 4 years–if she takes longer or wants to go to graduate school, she will be on her own.


Tuition and other costs will be due at the beginning of each school year (at t = 8, 9, 10, and 11).


So far, John and Daphne have accumulated $15,000 in their college savings account (at t = 0).  Their long-run financial plan is to add an additional $5,000 in each of the next 4 years (at t = 1, 2, 3, and 4).  Then they plan to make 3 equal annual contributions ineach of the following years, t = 5, 6, and 7.  They expect their investment account to earn 9%.  How large must the annual payments at t = 5, 6, and 7 be to cover Ellen’s anticipated college costs?




 3. Kebt Corporation’s Class Semi bonds have a 12-year maturity and an 8.75% coupon paid semiannually (4.375% each 6 months),  and those bonds sell at their $1,000 par value.  The firm’s Class Ann bonds have the same risk, maturity, nominal interest rate, and par value, but these bonds pay interest annually.  Neither bond is callable.


 At what price should the annual payment bond sell?




4. Moon Software Inc. is planning to issue two types of 25-year, non-callable bonds to raise a total of $6 million, $3 million from each type of bond.  First, 3,000 bonds with a 10% semiannual coupon will be sold at their $1,000 par value to  raise $3,000,000.  These are called “par” bonds.  Second, Original Issue Discount (OID) bonds, also with a 25-year maturity and a $1,000 par value, will be sold, but these bonds will have a semiannual coupon of only 6.25%.  The OID bonds must be offered at below par in order to provide investors with the same effective yield as the par bonds.


How many OID bonds must the firm issue to raise $3,000,000?


Disregard flotation costs, and round your final answer up to a whole number of bonds.
