Hi,
If I solve it in Excel will that be sufficient. I will let you know the formula used in excel and how you derive.

It should suffice. Let me show you what I came up with and see if we agree.

Approximate yield to maturity will be that Y' =

\$1,195 = 110/(1+i) + 110/(1+i)^2 + ... + 110/(1+i)^10 + 1000/(1+i)^10

Solving for Y gives: Y = 0.0808303

Answer = 8.08% or rounded up to Y' = 8.10%.
