**Question-1)**

**At what rate of interest will an investment yield a return of 7% if purchased at a 5% discount, with a brokerage fee of $ 1/5$%?**

**Answer:**

Required answer = ${7 }/ {(100 - 5 + 0.25)} × 100$

= ${7}/{100 - 4.75}× 100 $

=$ {7}/{95.25} × 100$

= 7.349

= 7.35% (Approx.)

**Question-2)**

**Srinivas bought 20 shares of Rs. 50 at 5 discount the rate of dividend being $3/4%$ The rate of interest obtained is ?**

**Answer:**

Here, Srinivas bought 20 shares of Rs. 50 each at a discount of 5, which means he paid:

Cost price of 1 share = Rs. 50 - Rs. 5 = Rs. 45

Total cost price of 20 shares = 20 × Rs. 45 = Rs. 900

The rate of dividend is given as $ 3/4%. $This means for each share, Srinivas will get:

Dividend per share =$ 3/4%$ of Rs. 50 = Rs. $3/4$ × $50/100$ = Rs. 0.375

Total dividend on 20 shares = 20 × Rs. 0.375 = Rs. 7.50

The rate of interest obtained by Srinivas can be calculated as follows:

Rate of interest =$ {\text"Dividend per share"} / {\text"Cost price of 1 share"}$ × 100%

= $(0.375 / 45)$ × 100%

= 0.8333%

Therefore, the rate of interest obtained by Srinivas on his investment is 0.8333%.

**Question-3)**

**An investment of Rs. 2780 is divided between a 4% stock at 75 and a 5% stock at 80 so that the income from both the investments is equal. What is the amount invested in the 5% stock?**

**Answer:**

Let the investment in 4% stock be Rs. N

Then, investment in 5% stock = Rs. (2780 - N)

Income from 4% stock = Rs.$ (4/75)$ × N

Income from 5% stock = Rs. $ 5/80$ × 2780 - N

∴$ {4N} / 75$ =$ (2780 - N) / 16$ or N = 1500

So, investment in 5% stock = Rs. (2780 - 1500) = Rs. 1280

**Question-4)**

**A company declared an annual dividend of 10%. Find out the annual dividend received by Saju owning 4000 shares of the company having a face value of 100 each.**

**Answer:**

Face value = 100 , Total shares = 5000

Annual dividend on one share = 10% of Face value

Annual dividend on one share = 10% of 100

Annual dividend on one share = $ 10/100 $× 10 = 10

∴ Annual dividend on 4000 shares = Total shares × Annual dividend on one share

Annual dividend on 4000 shares = (5000 × 10) = 50000

**Question-5)**

**Find the income on $7 {3}/2%$ stock of 25000 purchased at 120.**

**Answer:**

Here , Face value of the stock = 25000

Income on 100 stock = 7 $ {3}/2 = 17/ 2 $

Income on 1 stock = $ 17 / 2/ 100 = 17/ 200 $

Required Income on 25000 = Income on 1 stock × Face

value of the stock Income on 25000 stock

= $17/200 $× 25000 = 2125

**Question-6)**

**A company issued 40000 shares of par value 10 each. If the total dividend declared by the company is 72500, then find out the rate of dividend paid by the company.**

**Answer:**

Number of shares = 40000

Par value of a share = 10

∴ Total par value of 50000 shares = Number of shares × Par value of a share

Total par value of 50000 shares = 40000 × 10 = 400000

Total dividend = 72500

∴ Rate of dividend paid by the company

=$ {\text"Total dividend"}/{\text"Total par value"} × 100% $

Rate of dividend paid by the company

=${ 72500}/{400000 }× 100 % = 18.125 % $
