**drwls**, Monday, December 22, 2008 at 7:35pmYou want a yield to maturity of 8%, presumably because that is the current market rate for that type of bond and maturity, so that is what is "required".

Using (Broken Link Removed) and a trial and error method, I compute that a current bond price of $902 will yield 8% to maturity.

Bonds typically pay interest semiannually.
