For 1st part

Nominal value of 1 share= Rs100

Market value of 1 share= Rs100 - 8% of Rs100

= Rs100 - Rs8= Rs92

Dividend%= 8%

Dividend on 1 share= 8% of Rs100= Rs8

Total dividend

For 2nd part

Nominal value of 1 share= Rs100

Market value of 1 share= Rs100 + 8% of Rs100

= Rs100 + Rs8= Rs108

Dividend%= 9%

Dividend on 1 share= 9% of Rs100= Rs9

Total dividend

Given that both dividend are equal

Then

1st part= Rs24,840

2nd part= Rs50760 - Rs24,840= Rs25,920 Ans.

Question 14

Mr. Shameem invested of his savings in 20% Rs50 shares quoted at Rs60 and the remainder of the savings in 10% Rs100 share quoted at Rs110. If his total income from these investments is Rs9,200; find :

(i)his total savings (ii)the number of Rs50 share

(iii)the number of Rs100 share.

Solution 14

Let his total savings is Rs y

1st case

His saving= of y = Rs

Market price of 1 share= Rs60

Then shares purchased=

Dividend on 1share= 20% of Rs50= Rs10

Total dividend=

2nd case

His saving= of y= Rs

Market price of 1share= Rs110

Then shares purchased =

Dividend on 1share= 10% of Rs100= Rs10

Total dividend=

According to question

Total income = Rs9,200

The number of Rs50share= Ans.

The number of Rs100 share= Ans.

Question 15

Vivek invests Rs4,500 in 8%, Rs10 shares at Rs15. He sells the shares when the price rises to Rs30, and invests the proceeds in 12% Rs100 shares at Rs125. Calculate :

(i)the sale proceeds

(ii)the number of Rs125 shares he buys.

(iii)the change in his annual income from dividend.

Solution 15

1st case

Total investment= Rs4,500

Market value of 1 share= Rs15

Nominal value of 1 share= Rs10

Nominal value of 300 shares= Rs10 300= Rs3,000

Dividend=8% of Rs3,000

Sale price of 1 share= Rs30

Total sale price= Rs30 x 300= Rs9,000 Ans.

(ii)new market price of 1 share= Rs125

Ans.

(iii)

New nominal value of 1 share= Rs100

New nominal value of 72 shares= Rs100 x 72= Rs7,200

Dividend%= 12%

New dividend= 12% of Rs7,200

Change in annual income= Rs864 - Rs240

= Rs624 Ans.

Question 16

Mr.Parekh invested Rs.52,000 on Rs.100 shares at a discount of Rs.20 paying 8% dividend. At the end of one year he sells the shares at a premium of Rs.20. Find:

(i)The annual dividend

(ii)The profit earned including his dividend.

Solution 16

Rate of dividend = 8%

Investment = Rs.52000

Market Rate = Rs.100 - 20 = Rs.80

No. of shares purchased =

(i) Annual dividend = 650 × 8 = Rs.5200 Ans.

(ii) On selling, market rate = Rs.100+20 = Rs.120

Sale price = 650 × 120 = Rs.78000

Profit = Rs.78000 - Rs.52000 = Rs.26000

Total gain = 26000 + 5200 = Rs.31200 Ans.
