The cash flow for each of the years is as follows:

Year One = RM100 (which is a par value x coupon rate)
Year Two = RM100
Year Three = RM100
Year Four = RM100
Year Five = RM100
Year Six = RM100
Year Seven = RM100
Year Eight = RM100
Year Nine = RM100
Year Ten = RM1100 (par value + coupon)

Thus, the PV of the cash flows is as follows (expected cash flows in period T / (1 + rate of return) to the T power):

Year One = RM91.74
Year Two = RM84.17
Year Three = RM77.22
Year Four = RM70.87
Year Five = RM64.98
Year Six = RM59.63
Year Seven = RM54.7
Year Eight = RM50.19
Year Nine = RM46.04
Year Ten = RM464.72

Now to find the value of the bond:
Value = RM91,74 + RM84,17 + ...
Value = RM1,064.26

Therefore, Raul doesn't have enough money to buy 10 bonds (he can only afford 9)

Answer: No, Raul doesn't have enough money to buy 10 bonds if the required rate of return is 9 percent.
