# Several years ago, Castles in the Sand Inc. issued bonds at face value of \$1,000 at a yield to maturity of 8.0%. Now, with 7 years left until the maturity of the bonds, the company has run into hard times and the yield to maturity on the bonds has increased to 12%. a. What is the price of the bond now? (Assume semiannual coupon payments.) (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.) b. Suppose that investors believe that Castles can make good on the promised coupon payments but that the company will go bankrupt when the bond matures and the principal comes due. The expectation is that investors will receive only 82% of face value at maturity. If they buy the bond today, what yield to maturity do they expect to receive?

An important application of regression analysis in accounting is in the estimation of cost. by collecting data on volume and cost and using the least squares method to develop an estimated regression equation relating volume and cost, an accountant can estimate the cost associated with a particular manufacturing volume. consider the following sample of production volumes and total cost data for a manufacturing operation. production volume (units) total cost (\$) 400 4000 450 5000 550 5400 600 5900 700 6400 750 7000 compute b 1 and b 0 (to 2 decimals if necessary). b 1 b 0 complete the estimated regression equation (to 2 decimals if necessary). = + x what is the variable cost per unit produced (to 1 decimal)? \$ compute the coefficient of determination (to 4 decimals). note: report r 2 between 0 and 1. r 2 = what percentage of the variation in total cost can be explained by the production volume (to 2 decimals)? % the company's production schedule shows 500 units must be produced next month. what is the estimated total cost for this operation (to 2 decimals)? \$

Two products, qi and vh, emerge from a joint process. product qi has been allocated \$34,300 of the total joint costs of \$55,000. a total of 2,900 units of product qi are produced from the joint process. product qi can be sold at the split-off point for \$11 per unit, or it can be processed further for an additional total cost of \$10,900 and then sold for \$13 per unit. if product qi is processed further and sold, what would be the financial advantage (disadvantage) for the company compared with sale in its unprocessed form directly after the split-off point?
