(i) the number of shares he has in the company.

(ii) the dividend percent per share.

**Solution:**

Total investment = ₹ 8,800

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 110

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 8800 }{ 110 }\) = 80

Nominal value of 80 shares = 80 × 100= ₹ 8,000

Let dividend% = y%

then y% of ₹ 8,000 = ₹ 1,200

⇒ \(\frac { y }{ 100 }\) × 8,000 = 1,200

⇒ y = 15%

**Question 14.**

A man invests ₹ 1,680 in buying shares of nominal value ₹ 24 and selling at 12% premium. The dividend on the shares is 15% per annum. Calculate:

(i) the number of shares he buys;

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 24

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 24+ 12% of ₹ 24

= ₹ 24+ ₹ 2.88= ₹ 26.88

Total investment = ₹ 1,680

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 1680 }{ 26.88 }\) = 62.5

Nominal value of 62.5 shares = 62.5 x 24= ₹ 1,500

Dividend = 15% of ₹ 1,500

= \(\frac { 15 }{ 100 }\) × 1,500 = ₹ 225

**Question 15.**

**Solution:**

Total investment = ₹ 7,500

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

No. of shares purchased = y

Nominal value of y shares = 100 x y = ₹ (100y)

Dividend% = 10%

Dividend = ₹ 500

### Shares and Dividends Exercise 3B – Selina Concise Mathematics Class 10 ICSE Solutions

**Question 1.**

A man buys 75, ₹ 100 shares of a company which pays 9 percent dividend. He buys shares at such a price that he gets 12 percent of his money. At what price did he buy the shares ?

**Solution:**

**Question 2.**

By purchasing ₹ 25 gas shares for ₹ 40 each, a man gets 4 percent profit on his investment. What rate percent is the company paying? What is his dividend if he buys 60 shares?

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 25

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 40

Profit% on investment = 4%

Then profit on 1 share = 4% of ₹ 40= ₹ 1.60

∴ Dividend% = \(\frac { 1.60 }{ 25 }\) × 100% = 6.4%

No. of shares purchased= 60

Then dividend on 60 shares = 60 × ₹ 1.60 = ₹ 96

**Question 3.**

Hundred rupee shares of a company are available in the market at a premium of ₹ 20. Find the rate of dividend given by the company, when a man’s return on his investment is 15%.

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 100 + ₹ 20 = ₹ 120

Profit% on investment of 1 share =15%

Then profit= 15% of ₹ 120 = ₹ 18

∴ Dividend% = \(\frac { 18 }{ 100 }\) × 100% = 18%

**Question 4.**

₹ 50 shares of a company are quoted at a discount of 10%. Find the rate of dividend given by the company, the return on the investment on these shares being 20 percent.

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 50

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 50 – 10% of ₹ 50

= ₹ 50 – ₹ 5 = ₹ 45

Profit % on investment = 20%

Then profit on 1 share = 20% of ₹ 45 = ₹ 9

∴ Dividend% = \(\frac { 9 }{ 50 }\) × 100% = 18%

**Question 5.**

A company declares 8 percent dividend to the share holders. If a man receives ₹ 2,840 as his dividend, find the nominal value of his shares.

**Solution:**

Dividend% = 8%

Dividend = ₹ 2,840

Let nominal value of shares = ₹ y

then 8% of y = ₹ 2,840

⇒ \(\frac { 8 }{ 100 }\) × y = ₹ 2,840

⇒ y = ₹ 35000

**Question 6.**

How much should a man invest in ₹ 100 shares selling at ₹ 110 to obtain an annual income of ₹ 1,680, if the dividend declared is 12%?

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 110

Let no. of shares purchased = n

Then nominal value of n shares = ₹ (100n)

Dividend% = 12%

Dividend = ₹ 1,680

Then market value of 140 shares= 140 × 110 = ₹ 15,400

**Question 7.**

A company declares a dividend of 11.2% to all its share-holders. If its ₹ 60 share is available in the market at a premium of 25%, how much should Rakesh invest, in buying the shares of this company, in order to have an annual income of ₹ 1,680?

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 60

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 60+ 25% of ₹ 60

= ₹ 60 + ₹ 15 = ₹ 75

Let no. of shares purchased = n

Then nominal value of n shares = ₹ (60n)

Dividend% = 11.2%

Dividend = ₹ 1,680

Then market value of 250 shares = 250 × 75 = ₹ 18,750

**Question 8.**

A man buys 400, twenty-rupee shares at a premium of ₹ 4 each and receives a dividend of 12%. Find:

(i) the amount invested by him.

(ii) his total income from the shares.

(iii) percentage return on his money.

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 20

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 20 + ₹ 4 = ₹ 24

No. of shares purchased = 400

Nominal value of 400 shares = 400 × 20 = ₹ 8,000

(i) Market value of 400 shares = 400 × 24 = ₹ 9,600

**Question 9.**

A man buys 400, twenty-rupee shares at a discount of 20% and receives a return of 12% on his money. Calculate:

(i) the amount invested by him.

(ii) the rate of dividend paid by the company.

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 20

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 20 – 20% of ₹ 20

= ₹ 20 – ₹ 4 = ₹ 16

No. of shares purchased = 400

Nominal value of 400 shares = 400 x 20 = ₹ 8,000

(i) Market value of 400 shares = 400 x 16 = ₹ 6,400

(ii) Return%= 12%

Income = 12% of ₹ 6,400

**Question 10.**

A company, with 10,000 shares of ₹ 100 each, declares an annual dividend of 5%.

(i) What is the total amount of dividend paid by the company?

(ii) What should be the annual income of a man who has 72 shares in the company?

(iii) If he received only 4% of his investment, find the price he paid for each share.

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Nominal value of 10,000 shares = 10,000 x ₹ 100 = ₹ 10,00,000

(i) Dividend% = 5%

Dividend = 5% of ₹ 10,00,000

= \(\frac { 5 }{ 100 }\) × 10,00,000 = ₹ 50,000

(ii) Nominal value of 72 shares= ₹ 100 x 72 = ₹ 7,200

Dividend = 5% of ₹ 7,200

= \(\frac { 5 }{ 100 }\) × 7,200 = ₹ 360

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

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

Return% = 4%

then 4% of ₹ 10,000y = ₹ 50,000

⇒ \(\frac { 4 }{ 100 }\) × 10,000y = ₹ 50,000

⇒ y = ₹ 125

**Question 11.**

A lady holds 1800, ₹ 100 shares of a company that pays 15% dividend annually. Calculate her annual dividend. If she had bought these shares at 40% premium, what is the return she gets as percent on her investment. Give your answer to the nearest integer.

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 100 + 40% of ₹ 100

= ₹ 100 + ₹ 40 = ₹ 140

No. of shares purchased = 1800

Nominal value of 1800 shares = 1800 × 100 = ₹ 1,80,000

Market value of 1800 shares= 1800 × 140 = ₹ 2,52,000

(i)Dividend% = 15%

Dividend = 15% of ₹ 1,80,000

(i) his annual dividend

(ii) his percentage return on his investment.

**Solution:**

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 140

Total investment = ₹ 11,200

No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 11,200 }{ 140 }\) = 80 shares

Then nominal value of 80 shares= 80 × 100= ₹ 8,000

(i) Dividend% = 6%

Dividend = 6% of ₹ 8,000

**Question 13.**

Mr. Sharma has 60 shares of nominal value ₹ 100 and decides to sell them when they are at a premium of 60%. He invests the proceeds in shares of nominal value ₹ 50, quoted at 4% discount, and paying 18% dividend annually. Calculate :

(i) the sale proceeds

(ii) the number of shares he buys and

(iii) his annual dividend from the shares.

**Solution:**

1st case

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Nominal value of 60 shares = ₹ 100 × 60= ₹ 6,000

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 100 + 60% of ₹ 100

= ₹ 100+ ₹ 60 = ₹ 160

Market value of 60 shares = ₹ 160 × 60 = ₹ 9,600 Ans.

(ii) Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 50

Market value of 1 share= ₹ 50 – 4% of ₹ 50

= ₹ 50 – ₹ 2 = ₹ 48

No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 9,600 }{ 48 }\) = 200 shares

(iii) Nominal value of 200 shares = ₹ 50 × 200 = ₹ 10,000

Dividend% = 18%

Dividend = 18% of ₹ 10,000

= \(\frac { 18 }{ 100 }\) × 10,000 = ₹ 1800

**Question 14.**

A company with 10,000 shares of nominal value ₹ 100 declares an annual dividend of 8% to the share-holders.

(i) Calculate the total amount of dividend paid by the company.

(ii) Ramesh had bought 90 shares of the company at ₹ 150 per share. Calculate the dividend he receives and the percentage of return on his investment.

**Solution:**

(i) Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Nominal value of 10,000 shares = ₹ 100 × 10,000 = ₹ 10,00,000

Dividend% = 8%

Dividend = 8% of ₹ 10,00,000

= \(\frac { 8 }{ 100 }\) × 10,00,000 = ₹ 80,000

(ii) Market value of 90 shares = ₹ 150 × 90 = ₹ 13,500

Nominal value of 90 shares = ₹ 100 × 90 = ₹ 9,000

Dividend = 8% of ₹ 9,000

= \(\frac { 8 }{ 100 }\) × 9,000 = ₹ 720

**Question 15.**

Which is the better investment :

16% ₹ 100 shares at 80 or 20% ₹ 100 shares at 120?

**Solution:**

1st case

16% of ₹ 100 shares at 80 means;

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 80

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Dividend = 16%

Income on ₹ 80= 16% of ₹ 100 = ₹ 16

Income on ₹ 1 = \(\frac { 16 }{ 80 }\) = ₹ 0.20

2nd case

20% of ₹ 100 shares at 120 means;

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 120

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Dividend = 20%

Income on ₹ 120 = 20% of ₹ 100= ₹ 20

Income on ₹ 1 = \(\frac { 20 }{ 120 }\) = ₹ 0.17

Then 16% ₹ 100 shares at 80 is better investment.

**Question 16.**

A man has a choice to invest in hundred-rupee shares of two firms at ₹ 120 or at ₹ 132. The first firm pays a dividend of 5% per annum and the second firm pays a dividend of 6% per annum. Find:

(i) which company is giving a better return.

(ii) if a man invests ₹ 26,400 with each firm, how much will be the difference between the annual returns from the two firms.

**Solution:**

(i) 1st firm

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 120

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Dividend = 5%

Income on ₹ 120 = 5% of ₹ 100 = ₹ 5

Income on ₹ 1 = \(\frac { 5 }{ 120 }\) = ₹ 0.041

2nd firm

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 132

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Dividend = 6%

Income on ₹ 132 = 6% of ₹ 100 = ₹ 6

Income on ₹ 1 = \(\frac { 6 }{ 132 }\) = ₹ 0.045

Then investment in second company is giving better return.

(ii) Income on investment of ₹ 26,400 in fi₹ t firm

= \(\frac { 5 }{ 120 }\) × 26,400 = ₹ 1,100

Income on investment of ₹ 26,400 in second firm

= \(\frac { 6 }{ 132 }\) × 26,400 = ₹ 1,200

∴ Difference between both returns = ₹ 1,200 – ₹ 1,100 = ₹ 100

**Question 17.**

A man bought 360, ten-rupee shares of a company, paying 12% per annum. He sold the shares when their price rose to ₹ 21 per share and invested the proceeds in five-rupee shares paying 4.5 percent per annum at ₹ 3.50 per share. Find the annual change in his income.

**Solution:**

1st case

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 10

Nominal value of 360 shares = ₹ 10 × 360 = ₹ 3,600

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 21

Market value of 360 shares = ₹ 21 × 360 = ₹ 7,560

Dividend% = 12%

Dividend = 12% of ₹ 3,600

= \(\frac { 12 }{ 100 }\) × 3,600 = ₹ 432

2nd case

Nominal value of 1 share= ₹ 5

Market value of 1 share= ₹ 3.50

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 7,560 }{ 3.50 }\) = 2,160 shares

Nominal value of 2160 shares=₹ 5 × 2160= ₹ 10,800

Dividend%= 4.5%

Dividend= 4.5% of ₹ 10,800

= \(\frac { 4.5 }{ 132 }\) × 10,800 = ₹ 486

Annual change in income = ₹ 486 – ₹ 432

= ₹ 54 increase

**Question 18.**

A man sold 400 (₹ 20) shares of a company, paying 5% at ₹ 18 and invested the proceeds in (₹ 10) shares of another company paying 7% at ₹ 12. How many (₹ 10) shares did he buy and what was the change in his income?

**Solution:**

1st case

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 20

Nominal value of 400 shares = ₹ 20 x 400= ₹ 8,000

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 18

Market value of 400 shares = ₹ 18 x 400= ₹ 7,200

Dividend% = 5%

Dividend = 5% of ₹ 8,000

= \(\frac { 5 }{ 100 }\) × 8,000 = ₹ 400

2nd case

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 10

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 12

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 7,200 }{ 12 }\) = 600 shares

Nominal value of 600 shares = ₹ 10 x 600 = ₹ 6,000

Dividend% = 7%

Dividend = 7% of ₹ 6,000

= \(\frac { 7 }{ 100 }\) × 6,000 = ₹ 420

Annual change in income = ₹ 420 – ₹ 400

= ₹ 20 increase

**Question 19.**

Two brothers A and B invest ₹ 16,000 each in buying shares of two companies. A buys 3% hundred-rupee shares at 80 and B buys ten-rupee shares at par. If they both receive equal dividend at the end of the year, find the rate per cent of the dividend received by B.

**Solution:**

For A

Total investment = ₹ 16,000

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 80

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 16,000 }{ 80 }\) = 200 shares

Nominal value of 200 shares = ₹ 100 × 200 = ₹ 20,000

Dividend% = 3%

Dividend = 3% of ₹ 20,000

= \(\frac { 3 }{ 100 }\) × 20,000 = ₹ 600

For B

Total investment= ₹ 16,000

Nominal value of 1 share= ₹ 10

Market value of 1 share= ₹ 10

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 16,000 }{ 10 }\) = 1600 shares

Nominal value of 1600shares= 10 × 1600= ₹ 16,000

Dividend received by B = Dividend received by A = ₹ 600

**Question 20.**

A man invests ₹ 20,020 in buying shares of nominal value ₹ 26 at 10% premium. The dividend on the shares is 15% per annum. Calculate :

(i) the number of shares he buys.

(ii) the dividend he receives annually.

(iii) the rate of interest he gets on his money.

**Solution:**

Total investment = ₹ 20,020

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 26

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 26+ 10% of ₹ 26

= ₹ 26+ ₹ 2.60 = ₹ 28.60

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 20,020 }{ 28.60 }\) = 700 shares

Nominal value of 700 shares= ₹ 26 x 700 = ₹ 18,200

Dividend% = 15%

Dividend = 15% of ₹ 18,200

= \(\frac { 15 }{ 100 }\) × 18,200 = ₹ 2,730

(i) which firm is paying better.

(ii) if Mr. Gupta invests equally in both the firms and the difference between the returns from them is ₹ 30, find how much, in all, does he invest.

**Solution:**

(i) 1st firm

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 10

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 13

Dividend% = 5%

Dividend = 5% of ₹ 10 = ₹ 0.50

2nd firm

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 10

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 16

Dividend% = 6%

Dividend = 6% of ₹ 10 = ₹ 0.60

Then first firm is paying better than second firm.

**Question 10.**

A man invested ₹ 45,000 in 15% Rs100shares quoted at ₹ 125. When the market value of these shares rose to ₹ 140, he sold some shares, just enough to raise ₹ 8,400. Calculate:

(i) the number of shares he still holds;

(ii) the dividend due to him on these remaining shares.

**Solution:**

(i) Total investment = ₹ 45,000

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 125

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 45,000 }{ 125 }\) = 360 shares

Nominal value of 360 shares = ₹ 100 × 360= ₹ 36,000

Let no. of shares sold = n

Then sale price of 1 share = ₹ 140

Total sale price of n shares = ₹ 8,400

Then n = \(\frac { 8,400 }{ 140 }\) = 60 shares

The no. of shares he still holds = 360 – 60 = 300

(ii) Nominal value of 300 shares = ₹ 100 × 300 = ₹ 30,000

Dividend% = 15%

Dividend = 15% of ₹ 30,000

= \(\frac { 15 }{ 100 }\) × 30,000 = ₹ 4,500

**Question 11.**

Mr.Tiwari. invested ₹ 29,040 in 15% Rs100 shares quoted at a premium of 20%. Calculate:

(i) the number of shares bought by Mr. Tiwari.

(ii) Mr. Tiwari’s income from the investment.

(iii) the percentage return on his investment.

**Solution:**

Total investment = ₹ 29,040

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 100

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 100+ 20% of ₹ 100

= ₹ 100 + ₹ 20 = ₹ 120

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 29,040 }{ 120 }\) = 242 shares

Nominal value of 242 shares = ₹ 100 x 242 = ₹ 24,200

Dividend% = 15%

Dividend = 15% of ₹ 24,200

= \(\frac { 15 }{ 100 }\) × 24,200 = ₹ 3,630

(i) the sale proceeds

(ii) the number of ₹ 125 shares he buys.

(iii) the change in his annual income from dividend.

**Solution:**

1st case

Total investment = ₹ 4,500

Market value of 1 share = ₹ 15

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 4,500 }{ 15 }\) = 300 shares

Nominal value of 1 share = ₹ 10

Nominal value of 300 shares = ₹ 10 × 300= ₹ 3,000

Dividend = 8% of ₹ 3,000

= \(\frac { 8 }{ 100 }\) × 3,000 = ₹ 240

Sale price of 1 share = ₹ 30

Total sale price= ₹ 30 × 300= ₹ 9,000

(ii) new market price of 1 share= ₹ 125

∴ No of shares purchased = \(\frac { 9,000 }{ 125 }\) = 72 shares

(iii) New nominal value of 1 share= ₹ 100

New nominal value of 72 shares = ₹ 100 × 72 = ₹ 7,200

Dividend% = 12%

New dividend = 12% of ₹ 7,200

= \(\frac { 12 }{ 100 }\) × 7,200 = ₹ 864

Change in annual 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:**

Rate of dividend = 8%

Investment = ₹ 52000

Market Rate = ₹ 100 – 20 = ₹ 80

No. of shares purchased = \(\frac { 52000 }{ 80 }\) = 650

(i) Annual dividend = 650 × 8 = ₹ 5200

(ii) On selling, market rate = ₹ 100+20 = ₹ 120

⇒ Sale price = 650 × 120 = ₹ 78000

Profit = ₹ 78000 – ₹ 52000 = ₹ 26000

⇒ Total gain = 26000 + 5200 = ₹ 31200
