Q no. 16, exercise 3, ML Publication, share and dividends

Share

1. (i) Nominal value of 1 share = Rs. 100
Nominal value of 10,000 shares = Rs. 100 × 10,000
= Rs. 10,00,000
Dividend% = 8%
Dividend = 8% of Rs. 10,00,000 = (8/100) ×Rs.10,00,000
=Rs.80,000
(ii) Market value of 90 shares = Rs. 150 × 90 = Rs. 13,500
Nominal value of 90 shares = Rs. 100 × 90 = Rs. 9,000
Dividend = 8% of Rs. 9,000 = (8/100) ×Rs.9,000= Rs.720
return%=income*100/investment=720*100/13500=16/3%
