#### Question

Rajat buys Rs. 80 shares at 30% premium in a company paying 18% dividend. Find:
(i) The market value of 150 shares.
(ii) Rajat’s annual income from these shares.
(iii) Rajat’s percentage return from this investment.

#### Solution

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs. 80
Market value of 1 share = Rs. 80 + 30% of Rs. 80
= Rs. 80 + Rs. 24 = Rs. 104
Market value of 150 shares = Rs. 104 × 150 = Rs. 15,600
Nominal value of 150 shares = Rs. 80 × 150 = Rs. 12,000
Dividend% = 18%
Dividend = 18% of Rs. 12,000

= 18 /100×12,000 = 𝑅s. 2,160

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

= (2,160)/ (15,600)×100%

= 13.85%.
