Investments in the marketplace currently yield 5%. Therefore, a GM 4% coupon bond, maturing in 3 years, will be priced at?

I know the correct answer is \$973 but I don't understand why

Interest = \$1,000 * 0.04 = \$40

Current bond price = \$40(PVIFA 5%,3) + \$1,000(PVIF 5%,3)

Current bond price = (\$40 * 2.72325) + (\$1,000 * 0.86384)

Current bond price = \$973
