Valuation using treasury spot rates, Financial Management

To understand how treasury spot rates are used to calculate the arbitrage-free value of the treasury security, we will take imaginary treasury spot rates (given in the third column of the Table No.6) to find the value of 7% 5-year treasury security. Sum of the present value (given in the last column of the Table No.1) is the arbitrage-free value for the 7% 5-year treasury security.
