(I have two STEM master's degrees, I've been in exactly the same situation ðŸ˜ƒ )

2017-12-11 18:32:25 UTC

quick anecdote: when I was in calculus, I "studied hard"

2017-12-11 18:35:22 UTC

Taking notes on all of this good information, also that is impressive my dude!

2017-12-11 18:35:40 UTC

We have a library that I can use, and maybe normie starbucks might work, too

2017-12-11 18:37:44 UTC

I appreciate all the advice you've given mate!

2017-12-11 18:52:27 UTC

but I didn't strive to understand what I was doing. As soon as I got a rudimentary understanding, I immediately went on to other subjects or distractions

2017-12-11 18:52:46 UTC

needless to say, I got rekt later on in the course because I did not have the prior fundamentals down.

2017-12-11 18:53:25 UTC

So that summer, I went back through the text. I worked graveyard at a factory, and we got a few breaks every shift.

2017-12-11 18:54:04 UTC

So on the first break, I would very slowly and deliberately read the explanation at the beginning of the section. Then I would write down some practice problems.

2017-12-11 18:54:24 UTC

When the line went down (which happened a lot that summer), I would pull out the practice problems and work them on the scrap cardboard

2017-12-11 18:55:07 UTC

so that fall when I took the next course in the calc sequence, I did just fine because I took the time to get a full understanding

2017-12-11 18:55:35 UTC

it didn't take much time, but it did take full concentration. you'll see once you eliminate distractions that concentration matters much more than time spent.

2018-01-12 04:34:59 UTC

I would be happy to help with mathematics (calc 2 and below), also EMT-Basic and Nursing Assistant questions as well.

2018-01-24 20:59:51 UTC

I am writing a rhetorical analysis for my writing class on this video. I need to both analyze the argument and the way the speaker presents as well as determine the credibility of the information presented

2018-01-24 21:01:23 UTC

Note: The primary goal here is to examine rhetoric, how effectively the speakerâ€™s ideas are communicated, not necessarily to agree or disagree with the speaker.

2018-01-24 21:02:03 UTC

But naturally I can be contrarian and present evidence against the speaker

2018-01-24 21:03:37 UTC

Dude runs an NGO lol

2018-01-24 21:03:58 UTC

He's jewish too I'm weak

2018-01-25 19:13:25 UTC

@here Anyone know anything about bond valuation ?

2018-01-25 19:13:56 UTC

@BryceB-ND Yes! What's the question?

2018-01-25 19:14:04 UTC

Also yes

2018-01-25 19:14:06 UTC

If you have a floater and an inverse floater derived from your collateral, is the coupon rate of the collateral the weighted average of the floater and inverse floater?

2018-01-25 19:14:47 UTC

2018-01-25 19:15:08 UTC

I got 8%

2018-01-25 19:15:20 UTC

I used this "

2018-01-25 19:15:26 UTC

I used this as my example to go off of.

2018-01-25 19:17:12 UTC

I also want to check my work on computing the dirty and clean price as well as accrued interest of another example in case you both have an idea on that as well

2018-01-25 19:17:20 UTC

This is a similar example.

2018-01-25 19:17:33 UTC

Lemme find my calculator

2018-01-25 19:17:37 UTC

2018-01-25 19:17:39 UTC

ty

2018-01-25 19:21:59 UTC

Pretty sure 8 is correct

2018-01-25 19:22:48 UTC

Would just be the average

2018-01-25 19:22:55 UTC

Ok good that's what i had thought

2018-01-25 19:23:18 UTC

What's the other question?

2018-01-25 19:23:30 UTC

3. Assume the original maturity a bond with face value \$1000 is 8 years. The annualized
yield to maturity for the bond is 6.25% and its annual coupon rate is 7.5% being
2
semiannually paid. The bond was issued on 8/1/2015, and bought on 12/1/2017.
Compute the following:
(1) dirty price, (2) clean price and (3) accrued interest. (7 points)

2018-01-25 19:24:06 UTC

I calculated 1058.76 for dirty price, 1046.26 for clean and 12.5 for accrued interest.

2018-01-25 19:24:30 UTC

I understand this problem, what I don't get is how to calculate the accrued interest because I don't know how to determine the intervals of the semi annual interest payments.

2018-01-25 19:26:26 UTC

Hmm. Send pic of question
