#### Question

Mr.Tiwari. invested Rs 29,040 in 15% Rs 100 shares quoted at a premium of 20%. Calculate:
(1) the number of shares bought by Mr Tiwari.
(2) Mr. Tiwari’s income from the investment.
(3) the percentage return on his investment.

#### Solution

Total investment = Rs 29,040

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs 100

Market value of 1 share = Rs 100+ 20% of Rs 100

= Rs 100 + Rs 20 = Rs 120

∴ No of shares purchsed = 29040/120 = 242 shares

Nominal value of 242 shares = Rs 100 x 242 = Rs 24,200

Dividend% = 15%

Dividend = 15% of Rs  24,200

=15/100 xx 24200 = Rs 24200

= 15/100 xx 24200 = Rs 24200

"income%" = "income"/"investment" xx 10

= 3630/29040 xx 100%

= 12.5%
