#### Question

A company, with 10,000 shares of Rs 100 each, declares an annual dividend of 5%.

(1) What is the total amount of dividend paid by the company?
(2) What should be the annual income of a man who has 72 shares in the company?
(3) If he received only 4% of his investment, find the price he paid for each share

#### Solution

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 100

Nominal value of 10,000 shares = 10,000 x Rs 100 = Rs 10,00,000

1) Dividend% = 5%

= 5/100 xx 10,00,000 = "Rs"  50,000

2) Nominal value of 72 shares= Rs 100 x 72 = Rs 7,200

Dividend = 5% of Rs 7,200

= 5/100 xx 7200 = "Rs"  360

3) Let market value of 1 share = Rs y

Then market value of 10000 shares = Rs 10000y

Return% = 4%

then 4%  of  Rs 10000y = Rs 50000

=> 4/100 xx 10,000"y" = "Rs"  50,000

=> "y" = "Rs"  125
