The problem with this question is that the coupon amount is not included. The coupon amount is the "interest rate" on the bond. The bond has a face value which is the "principle" on the loan to the corporation. I assume from this question that the face value is \$90?

We would need to know the coupon amount and how often that is paid on the bond to the bond holder and the term of the bond.

For part a of the problem, if the face value of the bond is \$90, then:

Total cost \$= (9 X 90) + (9 X 9) = 891 for the purchase

But the remaining information can only be gathered if the remaining terms of the bond are included.
