Including the formula in this form might be useful, but it needs clarification.  In particular, this formula from Wikipedia does not explain that the income for a bond is based on yield to maturity (or to call); if a bond rises in price, the value of a will be less than the coupon payment.  I was hoping to find a more official SEC page giving the full SEC definitions.
