The bonds will sell at \$ 103.62

Explanation:

as the market YTM differs from the coupon rate

the face value will not be discounted at the bond rate to determinate their market value.

Their cash flow will be discounted at the market rate:

cash flow: 100 x 9% = 9 coupon in one year

100 x 9% = 9 coupon + 100 maturity = 109

The first year will be discounted at 7%

and the second year discouted at 8%

9/1.07 + 109 / (1.07^2) = 103.6160363
