Since the bond is paid semiannually, the coupon interest is divided by two. The interest payment is (6%*1000) = 60. Let the future value of the bond be X. Based on the formula, the future value of the bond is determined as follows: 1000 = (60/2)/(1.03)^5 + X/(1.03)10. 1000 = 25.88 + X/1.344. X/1.344 = 974.12. Therefore, X = (1.344*974.12...

It is also known as the law of diminishing marginal returns and in the simplest of terms, it states that wherever there are fixed and variable inputs in a production line, after a certain point, the addition of more variable inputs will yield less and less output per unit.
