"EAY=(\\frac{1+YTM}{2})^2-1"

"PV=\\frac{\\frac{C}{m}}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})}+\\frac{\\frac{C}{m}}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})^2}+...+\\frac{\\frac{C}{m}}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})^n}+\\frac{N}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})^n}"

"950=\\frac{\\frac{50}{2}}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})}+\\frac{\\frac{50}{2}}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})^2}+...+\\frac{\\frac{50}{2}}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})^{10}}+\\frac{1000}{(1+\\frac{YTM}{2})^{10}}"

YTM=5.66 %

"EAY=(\\frac{1+0.0566}{2})^2-1=0.0574" 5.74%

if it falls by one percent, then

"PV=\\frac{\\frac{50}{2}}{(1+\\frac{0.04}{2})}+\\frac{\\frac{50}{2}}{(1+\\frac{0.04}{2})^2}+...+\\frac{\\frac{50}{2}}{(1+\\frac{0.04}{2})^{10}}+\\frac{1000}{(1+\\frac{0.04}{2})^{10}}=1045"
