Q no. 32, exercise 3, ML Publication, share and dividends

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs. 100

Nominal value of 10,000

shares = 10,000 × Rs. 100 = Rs. 10,00,000

(i) Dividend% = 5%

Dividend = 5% of Rs. 10,00,000

= (5/100) × Rs.10,00,000 = Rs. 50,000

(ii) Nominal value of 72 shares = Rs. 100 × 72 = Rs. 7,200

Dividend = 5% of Rs. 7,200 = (5/100) × Rs.7,200 = Rs. 360

(iii) Let market value of 1 share = Rs y

Then market value of 10,000 shares = Rs. (10,000y)

Return% = 4%

4% of Rs. (10,000y) = Rs. 50,000 ⟹ (4/100) ×10,000 = Rs.50,000 ⟹ y = Rs. 125.

we have been given that :-

Nominal value of 1 share = Rs. 100

Nominal value of 10,000 shares = 10,000 × Rs. 100 = Rs. 10,00,000

solution:-

(i) Dividend% = 5% Dividend

= 5% of Rs. 10,00,000

= (5/100) × Rs.10,00,000

= Rs. 50,000

(ii) Nominal value of 72 shares = Rs. 100 × 72

= Rs. 7,200 Dividend = 5% of Rs. 7,200

= (5/100) × Rs.7,200 = Rs. 360

(iii) Let market value of 1 share = Rs y

Then market value of 10,000 shares = Rs. (10,000y)

Return% = 4%

4% of Rs. (10,000y) = Rs. 50,000

⟹ (4/100) ×10,000

= Rs.50,000 ⟹ y = Rs. 125.
