#### Question

A man invests Rs 3,072 in a company paying 5% per annum when its Rs 10 shares can be bought for Rs 16 each. Find :

(1) his annual income

(2) his percentage income on his investment.

#### Solution

Market value of 1 share = Rs 16

A nominal value of 1share = Rs 10

Money invested = Rs 3,072

∴ No. of shares purchased = 3072/16 = 192

Nominal value of 192 Shares = 10 xx 192 = Rs 1920

Annual income = 5% of Rs 1920

= 5/100 xx 1920

= Rs 96

Income% = 96/3072 xx100% = 3.125% = 3 1/8 %
