# Financial Bonds Examples

CALC 1 will calculate price, accrued interest and yield for 5 standard day calculation bases and 3 frequencies.

The Bonds Form Calculator uses the same data and functions as the Financial Bonds Calculator but has the advantages of using pickers for the dates, date basis and frequency.

## Price Example:

What price should you pay on April 28, 2004 for a 6.75% U.S. Treasury Bond that matures June 4, 2018 if you want a yield of 4.75%?

In RPN calculation mode, tap + to calculate the total price of 123.07.

In ALG mode, tap SWAP, then + RCL PRICE =

In CHN mode, tap +, ROLL, =

The default day basis is 30/360 so be sure to set the day basis.

The default frequency is 2 (semi), so you only need to set the frequency as required.
