#### Solution

i) 1st firm
Nominal value of 1 share = Rs. 10

Market value of 1 share = Rs. 13
Dividend% = 5%
Dividend = 5% of Rs. 10 = Rs. 0.50

∴ Income% = ("Income")/("Investment")×100%

= 0.50/13 ×100% = 3.846%

2nd firm

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs. 10

Market value of 1 share = Rs. 16
Dividend% = 6%
Dividend = 6% of Rs. 10 = Rs. 0.60

∴ Income% =("Income")/("Investment") ×100%

= 0.60/16 ×100% = 3.75%
Then first firm is paying better than second firm.

(ii)
Let money invested in each firm= Rs y
For 1st firm

∴ No of shares purchased = "y"/13shares
Total dividend = Rs. 0.50 × "y"/13 = Rs, "y"/26

For 2nd firm:
∴ No of shares purchased = "y"/16 shares
Total dividend = Rs. 0.60 × "y"/16  = Rs (3"y")/80
Given – difference of both dividend = Rs. 30

⇒ "y" / 26 - (3"y")/80 = Rs.30
⇒  Rs. "y"/ 1040 = 30
⇒ y = Rs. 30 × 1040 = Rs. 31,200
Total money invested in both firms = Rs. 31,200 × 2
= Rs. 62,400
