#### Question

Mr. Parekh invested Rs. 52,000 on Rs. 100 shares at a discount of Rs. 20 paying 8% dividend. At the end of one year, he sells the shares at a premium of Rs. 20. find

1) The annual dividend

2) The profit earned including his dividend.

#### Solution

Rate of dividend = 8%
Amount invested = Rs. 52,000
Market price = Rs. 100 – Rs. 20 = Rs. 80
Number of shares purchased= Rs. (52,000)/ 80 = 650
(1) Annual dividend = 650 × 8 = Rs. 5200

(2) On selling market rate = Rs 100 + 20 = Rs 120
⇒ sale price = Rs. 120 × 650 = Rs. 78,000
Profit = Rs. (78,000 – 52,000) = Rs 26000
⇒Total gain = 26000 + 5200 = Rs 31200
