The minimum selling price must be:

= $2,065.09.

Explanation:

a) Data and Calculations:

Face value of bond = $1,000

Interest rate = 11.28%

Interest payment = semiannually

Price of bond six years ago = $979

Desired return (yield) rate = 12%

Minimum selling price can be determined as follows:

N (# of periods) 12

I/Y (Interest per year) 12

PV (Present Value) 979

PMT (Periodic Payment) 5.64

Results

FV = $2,065.09

Sum of all periodic payments$67.68

Total Interest$1,018.41
