#### Question

A person buys 120 shares at a nominal value of Rs 40 each, which he sells at Rs 42.50 each. Find his profit and profit per cent.

#### Solution

Nominal value of 120 shares = Rs 40 × 120= Rs 4,800

Market value of 120 shares = Rs 42.50 × 120= Rs 5,100

His profit = Rs 5,100 –  Rs 4,800 = Rs 300
profit = 300/4800  × 100% = 6.25%
