Q7) There is a mistake in this question it will be $40 instead of $50.

Q9) Quarter 1:- Fixed payer will pay 5 million * 1.75%( 7% annually, and 7%/4= 1.75% Quarterly) = 87500.
At the same time Index payer will pay 5 million * 3.67% = 183750.
Hence, the fixed payer will receive = 183750-87500 = 96000.

Quarter 2:- Fixed payer will pay 5 million * 1.75%( 7% annually, and 7%/4= 1.75% Quarterly) = 87500.
Again at the same time Index payer receive pay 5 million * -2.24% = -112000
Hence, the Index payer will receive = -112000-87500 = 199500.

Hope this helps you.
