Default How do I find the effective rate of interest for this question?

Leroy is 25 and wants to start a retirement fund by purchasing a zero bond coupon from the US Treasury. He purchases one that has a $50,000 face value and will mature when he turns 65. If the simple interest is 8%, how much will Leroy have to pay now for the bond?
