17) Danno is trying to decide which of two bonds to buy. Bond H is a 10 percent coupon, 10-year maturity, $1,000 par, January 1, 2000 issue paying annual interest. Bond F is a 10 percent coupon, 10-year maturity, $1,000 par, January 1, 2000 issue paying semiannual interest. The market required return for each bond is 10 percent. When using present value to determine the prices of the bonds, Danno will find that ________.

B) the price of F is greater than H

C) the price of H is greater than F

D) he needs more information before determining the prices Coupon payment = 1,000 × 0.10 = $100

1) Using Financial calculator: PMT=100, N=10, I=8, FV=1000, CPT PV = $1,134.20

2) $1,000 since coupon rate and required rate of return are equal.

3) Using Financial calculator: PMT=100, N=10, I=12, FV=1000, CPT PV = $887
