Where
D = duration
t = number of periods in the future
Ct = cash flow to be delivered in t periods
n= termtomaturity & r = yield to maturity (per period basis).

[dP/P] [dR/(1+R)] = D
Or equivalently,
dP/P = D[dR/(1+R)] = MD × dR
where MD is modified duration.

dP = D[dR/(1+R)]P = (MD) × (dR) × (P)

%ΔP  DUR x ΔR/(1+R)
Modified Duration = Duration / (1 + R)
R 10% to 11% (.10 to .11) => D = + .01:
Table 4 10% coupon bond
%ΔP = 6.76 x .01/(1+.10)
= .0615 = 6.15%.
Actual decline = 6.23% (need to add correction for convexity)
The duration measure is a less accurate measure of price sensitivity the larger the change in interest rates
20% required return on 10% coupon bond, DUR = 5.72 years
%ΔP =  5.72 x .01/(1+.10)

Securities that have cash flows which are sensitive (in amount or timing) to interest rate levels should use effective duration (ED) and effective dollar duration (EDD).
