#### Question

A man buys Rs 75 shares at a discount of Rs 15 of a company paying 20% dividend. Find:

(1) the market value of 120 shares;

(2) his annual income;

(3) his profit per cent.

#### Solution

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 75

Market value of 1 share = Rs 75 – Rs 15 = Rs 60

Market value of 120 shares = 120 × 60 = Rs 7,200

Nominal value of 120 shares = 120 × 75 = Rs 9,000

Annual income = 20%  of Rs 9000

= 20/100 xx 9000

= Rs 1800

Profit% = 1800/7200 xx 100% = 25%
