Calculate the Percentage Income in the Following Investments: - Mathematics

Sum

Calculate the percentage income in the following investment:

Rs 7,225 paying 12% when a Rs 100 share is available at 15% discount.

Solution

Investment= Rs 7,225

Nominal value of each share =Rs 100

Market value = Rs( 100 - 15 % of Rs 100) = Rs ( 100-15) = Rs 85

No. of shares purchased = 7225/85 = 85

Face value of 85 shares =Rs 100 x 85 =Rs 8,500

Dividend = 12 %

Therefore, Annual Income = (12 xx 8500)/100 = Rs 1020

Hence, percentage income

= (1020 xx 100)/7225 = 140117 % = 14.12 %
