#### Solution

For 1st kind of shares,

Face value of shares (F.V.) = ₹ 100

Dividend = 6%

∴ Annual income from one share = 6/100 xx 100

= ₹ 6

Market value of the share (M.V.) = ₹ 104

Total amount invested = ₹ 20,800

∴ Number of shares = "Amount invested"/"Market value"

= (20,800)/104

= 200

∴ Total income from 1st kind of shares = 200 × 6

= ₹ 1200

For 2nd kind of shares,

Face value of shares (F.V.) = ₹ 100

Dividend = 10.5%

∴ Annual income from one share = 10.5/100 × 100

= ₹ 10.5

Market value of the share (M.V.) = ₹ 143

Total amount invested = ₹ 14300

∴ Number of shares = "Amount invested"/"Market value"

= 14300/143

= 100

∴ Total income from 2nd kind of shares

= 100 × 10.5 = ₹ 1050

∴ Total annual income of Dinesh from both these shares = 1200 + 1050

= ₹ 2250
