# Karan Buys 125 Shares of Rs 100 Each of 'Reliance Technologies Ltd.' Which Pays a Dividend of 6%. He Buys Them at Such a Price that He Gets 4% of His Money. - Mathematics

Sum

Karan buys 125 shares of Rs 100 each of 'Reliance Technologies Ltd.' which pays a dividend of 6%. He buys them at such a price that he gets 4% of his money. At what price did Karan buy the share?

#### Solution

Let Karan's investment be x.

Face value of 125 shares = Rs ( 100 x 125) = Rs 12,500

Dividend for 125 shares = 6 %  of 12,500J = Rs (6 xx 12500)/100 = Rs 750

He gets Rs 750 as dividend which is equal to 4°/o of money invested

⇒ (4 x)/100 = Rs 750

⇒ 4 x = Rs 75000

⇒ x = Rs 75000/4

⇒ x = Rs 18750

Hence, Karan invested Rs 18,750.

No. of shares bought by Karan = 125

Value of a share = Rs 18750/125 = Rs 150

Karan bought a share for Rs 150.
