#### Solution

In first case:

No. of shares sold = 350

Face value of each share =Rs 150

Face value of 350 shares =Rs ( 150 x 350) =Rs 52,500

Market value of each share = Rs 120

Market value of 350 shares =Rs ( 120 x 350) =Rs 42,000

Dividend (income) for 350 shares = 6 % of Rs 52,500 =

Rs (6 xx 52500)/100 = Rs 3150

In second case:

Proceeds from selling 350 shares =Rs 42,000

Face value of each share =Rs 75

Market value of each share = Rs 75

No. of shares bought = 42000/75 = 560

Usha bought 560 shares of Rs 75 each.

Face value of 560 shares =Rs (75 x 560) =Rs 42,000

Dividend (income) for 560 shares = 8 % of Rs 42,000 =

Rs (8 xx 42000)/100 = Rs 3360

Change in annual income =Rs (3,360 - 3,150) =Rs 210
