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

Given that:- face value of shares = Rs. 10

Number of shares = 200

Therefore face value of 200 shares = 10 × 200

=Rs. 2000

Now, amount invested for the purchase of 200 shares at the rate of Rs. 12.50 each

= 12.50 × 200

= Rs. 2500

Given that rate of dividend = 8%

Therefore total amount of dividend = (2000 × 8)/100

= Rs. 160
