Cosmic Communication Inc. is planning two new issues of 25-year bonds. Bond par will be sold at its $1,000 par value, and it will have a 10% semiannual coupon. Bond OID will be an Original issue Discount bond, and it will also have a 25-year maturity and a $1,000 par value, but its semiannual will be only 6.25%. If both bonds are to provide investors with the same effective yield, how many of the OID bonds must Cosmic issue to raise$3,000,000? Disregard flotation cost, and round your final answer up to a whole number of bonds.
