Here is what I think the answer is to my question....

The money market account will have \$10 in the safe if it is compounded yearly or \$10 and 5c if compounded daily based on this calculator...

https://www.bankofinternet.com/calculators/apy-interest-calc...

The safe with the bond (based on a par purchase of the bond and a coupon rate of 1%) will have \$10 in it if the coupons are paid annually.

THERE IS SOMETHING I AM DOING WRONG WITH THE CALCULATOR ON THIS PAGE
Or keeping the YTM at 1% and there are 2 semi-annual payments and the coupon is 2%
http://www.investopedia.com/calculator/aoytm.aspx
...then there will be how much in the second safe? \$20

from that site..."A bond that pays 2 coupon(s) of 2.00% per year, that has a market value of \$1,000.00, and that matures in 1 years will have a yield to maturity of 1.00%."

According to this calculator, the YTM is 1% to make a YTM of 1% in one year with 2 payments (purchased and sold at \$1000)

Why does one calculator say the coupon should be 2% and the other says 1% to get a YTM of 1% with 2 payments on a par purchase of one bond for one year.

Thanks for your help...just trying to get this idea through my brain. Kevin.
