B) Why does the longer term (15 year) bond fluctuate more when interest rates change than does the shorter term bond (1 year).

5% 1,047.62 1,518.98

8% 1,018.52 1,171.19

12% 982.14 863.78

**Anonymous**, Saturday, November 6, 2010 at 8:15pm(A.)1. 5%: Bond L: Input N = 15, I/YR = 5, PMT = 100, FV = 1000, PV = ?, PV = $1,518.98.

Bond S: Change N = 1, PV = ? PV = $1,047.62.

2. 8%: Bond L: From Bond S inputs, change N = 15 and I/YR = 8, PV = ?, PV = $1,171.19.

Bond S: Change N = 1, PV = ? PV = $1,018.52.

3. 12%: Bond L: From Bond S inputs, change N = 15 and I/YR = 12, PV = ? PV = $863.78.

Bond S: Change N = 1, PV = ? PV = $982.14. - Math -
