⇒ 10 x x = 12 x 150 Amount of investment in ₹ 5 shares = ₹ 5 x ₹ 180 = ₹ 13500

Question 13.
Divide ₹ 50,760 into two parts such that if one part is invested in 8% ₹ 100 shares at 8% discount and the other in 9% ₹ 100 shares at 8% premium, the annual incomes from both the investments are equal.
Solution:
Total investment = ₹ 50,760
Let first part of investment = x
Then second part = ₹ 50,760 – x
Rate of dividend in first part = 8% ₹100 at discount = 8%
M.V. of each share = ₹ 100 – 8 = ₹ 92
Rate of dividend second part = 9% ₹ 100 at premium = 8%
M.V. of each share = 100 + 8 = ₹ 108
But annual income from both part is same Question 14.
Mr. Shameem invested 33$$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ % of his savings in 20% ₹ 50 shares quoted at ₹ 60 and the remainder of the savings in 10% ₹ 100 shares quoted at ₹ 110. If his total income from these investments is ₹ 9,200 ; find :

Vivek invests ₹ 4500 in 8% ₹ 10 shares at ₹ 15. He sells the shares when the price rises to ₹ 30, and invests the proceeds in 12% ₹ 100 shares at ₹ 125. Calculate,
(i) the sale proceeds
(ii) the number of ₹ 125 shares he buys.
(iii) the change in his annual income from dividend.
Solution:
(i) By investing ₹ 15, share bought = ₹ 10
By investing ₹ 4500, share bought = $$\frac { 10 }{ 15 }$$ x 4500 = ₹ 3000
Total face value of ₹ 10 shares = ₹ 3000, Income = 8%
= $$\frac { 8 }{ 100 }$$ x 3000 = ₹ 240
By selling Rs. 10 share money received = ₹ 30
By selling Rs. 3000 shares money = $$\frac { 30 }{ 10 }$$ x 3000 = ₹ 9000
(ii) By investing ₹ 125, no. of share of ₹ 100 bought = 1
By investing ₹ 9000, no. of share of ₹ 100 bought = $$\frac { 1 }{ 125 }$$ x 9000 = 72
No. of ₹ 125 shares bought = 72
(iii) By investing ₹ 125 in Rs. 100 share, income = ₹ 12
By investing ₹ 9000 in ₹ 100 share, income = $$\frac { 12 }{ 125 }$$ x 9000 = ₹ 864
Increase in income = ₹ 864 – ₹ 240 = ₹ 624

Question 16.
Mr. Parekh invested ₹ 52,000 on ₹ 100 shares at a discount of ₹ 20 paying 8% dividend. At the end of one year he sells the shares at a premium of ₹ 20. Find
(i) The annual dividend.
(ii) The profit earned including his dividend.
Solution:
Investment = ₹ 52000,
N.V. of 1 share = ₹ 100
M.V. of 1 share for 1 st year = ₹ 100 – 20 = ₹ 80
No. of shares = $$\frac { 52000 }{ 80 }$$ = 650
(i) Annual dividend = $$\frac { 8 }{ 100 }$$ x 650 x 100 = ₹ 5200
(ii) S.P of 1 share = ₹ 100 + 20 = ₹ 120
S.P. of 650 shares = ₹ 120 x 650 = ₹ 78000
C.P. of 650 shares = ₹ 100 x 650 = ₹ 65000
Profit = S.P. – C.P. = ₹ 78000 – ₹ 65000 = ₹ 13000
Profit including dividend = ₹ 13000 + ₹ 5200 = ₹ 18200

Question 17.
Salman buys 50 shares of face value ₹ 100 available at ₹ 132.
(i) What is his investment ?
(ii) If the dividend is 7.5%, what will be his annual income ?
(iii) If he wants to increase his annual income by ₹ 150, how many extra shares should he buy?
Solution:
F.V. = ₹ 100
(i) M. V. = ₹ 132,
no. of shares = 50
Investment = no. of shares x M.V. = 50 x 132 = ₹ 6600
(ii) Income per share = 7.5% of N.V.
= $$\frac { 75 }{ 10 x 100 }$$ x 100 = ₹ 7.5
Annual incomes = 7.5 x 50 = ₹ 375
(iii) New annual income = 375 + 150 = ₹ 525
No. of shares = $$\frac { 525 }{ 7.5 }$$ = 70
No. of extra share = 70 – 50 = 20
