Complete problem 31 of Chapter 10 (shown below), and submit to your instructor. Show your
calculations and the algebraic manipulation of the price equation for the bond. In addition to
solving the problem, write a 100 to 200 word essay on the term structure of fixed income
securities.
One method used to obtain an estimate of the term structure of interest rates is called
bootstrapping. Suppose you have a one-year zero coupon bond with a rate of r1 and a two-year
bond with an annual coupon payment of C. To bootstrap the two-year rate, you can set up the
following equation for the price (P) of the coupon bond: P=C_1/(1+r_1 )+(C_2+Par value)/
(1+r_2 )^2
