A bond wioll pay $10,000 when it come due in 15 years. what is the price of the bond if the yield is to be 9% per annum compounded annually?

I used the Equation P = A*(1+i) ^n and the equation is 10,000 = A(1+.09)^15. Solving for A:

A = $2,745.38

The other part of the question asks:

When the bond has only 10 years left to maturity, it is offereed for sale at $3855.43. I am asked to estimate the yield on the bond if it is then purchased and held to maturity.

Thank you for your help!
