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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

Dude runs an NGO lol

He's jewish too I'm weak

@here Anyone know anything about bond valuation ?

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

Also yes

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?

I got 8%

I used this "

I used this as my example to go off of.

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

This is a similar example.

Pretty sure 8 is correct

Would just be the average

Ok good that's what i had thought

What's the other question?

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)

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

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.

Hmm. Send pic of question

2 min

Ok so the equation for AI might be

cash flow (1-(days/total days in coupon period))

Idk that helps

Yeah I know that much, thank you, I'm having trouble just discerning the days since the last coupon payment from the dates given is all.

Bonds usually pay interest on the first day of January and July

That's usually what semiannual implies.

Ok.

@SamanthaM awesome, I think this is the first homework help of the new academic channels!

Would anyone @here be willing to read my rought draft for a paper I'm writing on this video:
