Bond Price = C / (1+i) + C / (1+i)^2 + ....... + C / (1+i)^n + M / (1+i)^n

C = coupon payment
N = number of payments
I = interest rate, or required yield
M = value at maturity, or par value

Coupon = .095 x 1,000 = \$95
Maturity of the bond = 8 years
Interest = 10%
Principle = 1,000

Bond Price = 95/1.1 + 95/1.1^2 + 95/1.1^3 + 95/1.1^4 + 95/1.1^5 + 95/1.1^6 + 95/1.1^7 + 95/1.1^8 + 1,000/1.1^8
Bond Price = 973.33
