### Access answers to ML Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 3 – Shares and Dividends

**1. Find the dividends received on 60 shares of Rs 20 each if 9% dividend is declared.**

**Solution:**

Given value of shares = Rs. 20

Therefore the value of 60 shares = Rs. 20 Ã— 60

= Rs. 1200

Given that rate of dividend = 9%

Therefore total dividend = Rs. 1200 Ã— 9%

= 1200 Ã— (9/100)

= Rs 108

**2. A company declares 8 percent dividend to the share holders. If a man receives a Rs. 2840 as his dividend, find the nominal value of his shares.**

**Solution:**

Given that rate of dividend = 8%

Also given that amount of dividend = Rs. 2840

Therefore nominal value of shares = (2840 Ã— 100)/8

= Rs. 35500

**3. A man buys 200 ten-rupee shares at Rs. 12.50 each and receives a dividend of 8%. Find the amount invested by him and the dividend received by him in cash. **

**Solution:**

Given face value of shares = Rs. 10

Number of shares = 200

Therefore face value of 200 shares = 10 Ã— 200

= Rs. 2000

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

= 12.50 Ã— 200

= Rs. 2500

Given that rate of dividend = 8%

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

= Rs. 160

**4. Find the market price of 5% share when a person gets a dividend of Rs 65 by investing Rs. 1430.**

**Solution:**

Given amount of dividend = Rs. 65

Also given that rate of dividend = 5%

Therefore total face value = (65 Ã— 100)/5

= Rs. 1300

If face value is Rs. 1300, then market value = Rs. 140

If face value is Rs. 100, then market value = (1430 Ã— 100)/ 1300

= Rs. 110

**5. Salman buys 50 shares of face value Rs 100 available at Rs 132. **

**(i) what is his investment?**

**(ii) If the dividend is 7.5% p.a., what will be his annual income?**

**(iii) If he wants to increase his annual income by Rs 150, how many extra shares should he buy?**

**Solution:**

Given face value = Rs 100

(i) Given that market value = Rs 132

And number of shares = 50

Therefore investment = number of shares Ã— market value

= 50 Ã— 132

= Rs 6600

(ii) We have income per share = 7.5% of face value

= (75/ 10 Ã— 100) Ã— 100

= Rs. 7.5

Therefore annual income = 7.5 Ã— 50

= Rs 375

(iii) Therefore new annual income = 375 + 150 = Rs 525

Therefore number of shares = 525/7.5 = 70

Therefore, number of extra share to be increased = 70 â€“ 50

= 20

**6. A lady holds 1800, Rs. 100 shares of a company that pays 15% dividend annually. Calculate her annual dividend. If she had bought these shares at 40% premium, what percentage return does she get on her investment? Give your answer to the nearest integer.**

**Solution:**

Given total number of shares = 1800

Nominal value of each share = Rs. 100

And rate o dividend = 15%

Total face value of 1800 shares = 100 Ã— 1800

= Rs. 180000

Therefore total dividend = 180000 Ã— 15/100

= Rs. 2700

Therefore market value of each share = 100 + 40 = Rs. 140

Now the total investment = 140 Ã— 1800

= Rs. 252000

Therefore percentage on his return

= (27000 Ã— 100)/ 252000

= 10.7%

In integers 11%

**7. What sum should a person invest in Rs 25 shares, selling at Rs 36, o obtain an income of Rs 720, if the dividend declared is 12%? Also find the percentage return on his income.**

**(i) The number of shares bought by him.**

**(ii) The percentage return on his income.**

**Solution:**

Given nominal value of each share = Rs. 25

Market value of each share = Rs. 36

Total income = Rs 720

Rate of dividend = 12%

Therefore total nominal value = (100 Ã— 720)/ 12

= Rs 6000

(i) Number of shares = 6000/25

= 240

Total investment = 240 Ã— 36

= Rs 8640

(ii) Now, percentage return = (720 Ã— 100)/ 8640

= 8.3%

**8. Ashok invests Rs 26400 on 12% Rs 25 shares of a company. If he receives a dividend of Rs 2475, find:**

**(i) The number of shares he bought.**

**(ii) The market value of each share.**

**Solution:**

Given investment = Rs 26400

Face value of the each share = Rs 25

Rate of dividend = 12%

Total dividend = Rs 2475

We know that, dividend earned = market price of share Ã— number of shares Ã— r/100

(i) Therefore number of shares = (2475/12) Ã— (100/25)

= 825 shares

(ii) Market value of each share = (26400/825)

= Rs 32

**9. Amit kumar invests Rs 36000 in buying Rs 100 shares at Rs 20 premium. The dividend is 15% per annum. Find:**

**(i) The number of shares he buys**

**(ii) His yearly dividend**

**(iii) The percentage return on his investment.**

**Give your answer to the nearest whole number.**

**Solution:**

Given investment = Rs 36000

Face value = Rs 100

Premium = Rs 20 and dividend = 15%

(i) Number of shares = 36000/120

= 300

(ii) Dividend = 15% 0f (100 Ã— 300)

= Rs 4500

(iii) Percentage of return = (4500/36000) Ã— 100

= 450/36

= 12.5%

= 13%

**10. Mr. Tiwari invested Rs 29040 in 15% Rs 100 shares at a premium of 20%. Calculate:**

**(i) The number of shares bought by Mr. Tiwari**

**(ii) Mr. Tiwariâ€™s income from the investment**

**(iii) The percentage return on hid investment.**

**Solution:**

(i) Market value of one share = [(200/100) Ã— 100] + 100

= Rs 120

Number of shares = investment/ market value of one share

= 29040/120

= Rs 242

(ii) Therefore income from investment = 242 Ã— 15

= Rs 3630

(iii) Percentage return on his investment = (dividend/ market value) Ã— 100

= (15/120) Ã— 100

= 12.5%

**11. A man buys shares at the par value of Rs yielding 8% dividend at the end of a year. Find the number of shares bought if he receives a dividend of Rs 300.**

**Solution:**

Given face value of each share = Rs 10

Rate of dividend = 8% per annum

Total dividend = Rs 300

Therefore total face value of shares = (300 Ã— 100)/ 8

= Rs 3750

Number of shares = 3750/10

= 375

**12. A man invests Rs 8800 on buying shares of face value of rupees hundred each at a premium of 10%. If he earns Rs 1200 at the end of year as dividend, find:**

**(i) The number of shares he has in this company**

**(ii) The dividend percentage per share.**

**Solution:**

Given investment = Rs 8800

Face value of each share = Rs 100

Market value of each share = 100 + 10 = Rs 110

Total income = Rs 1200

Therefore total face value = (8800 Ã— 100)/ 110

= Rs 8000

(i) Number of shares = 8000/100

= 80

(ii) Rate of dividend = (1200 Ã— 100)/ 8000

= 15%

**13. A man invested Rs 45000 in 15% Rs 100 shares quoted at Rs 125. When the market value of these shares rose to Rs 140, he sold some shares, just enough to raise Rs 8400. Calculate:**

**(i) The number of shares he still holds.**

**(ii) The dividend due to him on these shares.**

**Solution:**

Given investment on shares = Rs 45000

Face value of each share = Rs 125

Therefore total number of shares = 45000/125

= 360 shares

Income from sold shares = Rs 8400

Therefore number of shares sold = income from shares/ number of shares sold

= 8400/ 140

= 60

(i) Number of shares he still holds = 300

(ii) Market value of 300 shares = 300 Ã— 140

= Rs 42000

Face value of 300 shares = 300 Ã— 125

= Rs 37500

Difference = Market value â€“ face value

= 42000 â€“ 37500

= Rs 4500

**14. A company pays a dividend of 15% on its ten â€“ rupee shares from which it deducts** **tax at the rate of 22%. Find the annual income of a man, who owns one thousand shares of his company.**

**Solution:**

Given number of shares = 1000

Face value of each share = Rs 10

Rate of dividend = 15%

Rate of tax deducted = 22%

Total face value of 1000 shares = 10 Ã— 1000

= 10000

Total dividend = 10000 Ã— (15/100)

= Rs 1500

Tax deducted at the rate of 22% = 1500 Ã— (22/100)

= Rs 330

Net annual income = 1500 â€“ 330

= 1170

**15. Ajay owns 560 shares of a company. The face value of each share is Rs 25. The company declares a dividend 0f 9%. Calculate **

**(i) The dividend that Ajay will get**

**(ii) The rate of interest, on his investment if Ajay has paid Rs. 30 for each share.**

**Solution:**

Given number of shares = 560

Face value of each share = Rs 25

Rate of dividend = 9% per annum

Total face value of 560 shares = 25 Ã— 560

= Rs 14000

(i) Amount of dividend = 14000 Ã— (9/100)

= Rs 1260

(ii) Market value of each share = Rs 30

Total investment = 30 Ã— 560

= Rs 16800

Therefore percentage of interest on his investment = (1200 Ã— 100)/ 16800

= 7.5%

**16. A company with 10000 shares of nominal value of Rs 100 declares an annual dividend of 8% to the share holders.**

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

**(ii) Ramesh bought 90 shares of company at Rs 150 per share.**

**Calculate the dividend he received and the percentage return on his investment.**

**Solution:**

Given number of shares = 10000

Nominal value of each share = Rs 100

Rate of annual dividend = 8%

Total face value of 10000 shares = 100 Ã— 10000

= Rs 1000000

Dividend = (1000000 Ã— 8)/ 100

= Rs 80000

(ii) Number of shares = 90

Face value of each share = Rs 150

Total face value of 90 shares = 100 Ã— 90

= Rs 9000

Therefore amount of dividend = (9000 Ã— 8)/ 100

= Rs 720

Market value of 90 shares = 90 Ã— 159

= Rs 13500

Therefore rate of interest = (720 Ã— 100)/ (13500 Ã— 1)

= 16/3

= 5.3 %

**17. A company with 4000 shares of nominal value of Rs. 110 declares annual dividend of 15%. Calculate :**

**(i) the total amount of dividend paid by the company,**

**(ii) the annual income of Shah Rukh who holds 88 shares in the company,**

**(iii) if he received only 10% on his investment, find the price Shah Rukh paid for each share. (2008)**

**Solution:**

Number of shares = 4000

Nominal (face) value of each share = Rs. 110

Total face value of 4000 shares = Rs. 110

x 4000

= Rs, 440000

Rate of annual dividend = 15%

(i) Amount of dividend = (440000 x 15)/ 100

= Rs 66000

(ii) Number of shares, Shah Rukh has = 88

Face value of 88 shares = 88 x 110

= Rs 9680

Annual dividend = (9680 x 15)/ 100

= Rs 1452

(iii) Rate of annual income on his investment = 10%

His investment = (1452 x 100)/ 10

= Rs 14520

Market value of each share = 14520/88

= Rs 165

**18. By investing Rs. 7500 in a company paying 10 percent dividend, an income of Rs. 500 is received. What price is paid for each Rs. 100 share.**

**Solution:**

Given investment = Rs. 7500

Rate of dividend = 10%,

Total income = Rs. 500.

Face value of each share = Rs. 100

Total face value = (100 x 500)/10

= Rs 5000

If face value is Rs. 5000, then investment = Rs. 7500

and if face value is Rs. 100 then market value of each share = (7500 x 100)/ 5000

= Rs 150

**19. A man invests Rs. 8000 in a company paying 8% dividend when a share of face value of Rs. 100 is selling at Rs. 60 premium,**

**(i) What is his annual income,**

**(ii) What percent does he get on his money ?**

**Solution:**

Given Investment = Rs. 8000

Face value of each share = Rs. 100

Market value = Rs. 100 + Rs. 60

= Rs. 160

Rate of dividend = 8% p.a.

(i) Annual income = (8 x 8000)/160

= Rs 400

(ii) Rate of interest on his money = (400 x 100)/ 8000

= 5%

**20. A man buys 400 ten-rupee shares at a premium of Rs. 2.50 on each share. If the rate of dividend is 8%, Find,**

**(i) his investment**

**(ii) dividend received**

**(iii) yield.**

**Solution:**

Given No. of shares = 400

Face value of each share = Rs. 10

Market value of each share

= Rs. 10 + Rs. 2.50

= Rs. 12.50

Rate of dividend = 8%

Therefore, face value of 400 shares = 10 x 400

= Rs 4000

(i) Total investment = 12.50 x 400

= Rs 5000

(ii) Total dividend = 4000

x (8/100)

= Rs 320

(iii) Yield percent = (320 x 100)/ 5000

= 32/5

= 6.4%

**21. A man invests Rs. 10400 in 6% shares at Rs. 104 and Rs. 11440 in 10.4% shares at Rs. 143. How much income would he get in all ?**

**Solution:**

Given In first case; Total investment = Rs. 10400

Rate of dividend = 6%

Market value of each share = Rs. 104

Total dividend = (10400 x 6)/ 104

= Rs 600

In second case, investment = Rs 11440

Rate of dividend = 10.4%

Market value of each share = Rs 143

Therefore, total dividend = (11440 x 10.4)/ 143

= Rs 832

Total dividend from both cases = Rs. 600 + Rs. 832

= Rs. 1432

**22. Two companies have shares of 7% at Rs. 116 and 9% at Rs. 145 respectively. In which of the shares would the investment be more profitable ?**

**Solution:**

Let the investment in each case = Rs. 116 x 145

Dividend in first case,

= (116 x 145 x 7)/ 116

= Rs 1015

Dividend in second case

= (116 x 145 x 9)/ 145

= Rs 1044

From the above it is clear that the second type of shares that is 9% at Rs 145 are more profitable.

**23. Which is better investment : 6% Rs. 100 shares at Rs. 120 or 8% Rs. 10 shares at Rs. 15**

**Solution:**

Let the investment in each case = Rs. 120 In the fist case,

Dividend on Rs. 120 = Rs. 6

In second case, Dividend on Rs. 10

= (8 x 10)/ 100

= 0.8

Now dividend on Rs 15 = 0.8

Then dividend on Rs 120 = (0.8 x 120)/ 15

= Rs 6.4

From the above it is clear that the second type of shares that is 8% at Rs 10shares at 15 is more profitable.

**24. A man invests Rs -10080 in 6% hundred- rupee shares at Rs. 112. Find his annual income. When the shares fall to Rs. 96 he sells out the shares and invests the proceeds in 10% ten-rupee shares at Rs. 8. Find the change in his annual income.**

**Solution:**

Given Investment = Rs. 10080

Face value of each share = Rs. 100

Market value of each share = Rs. 112

Rate of dividend = 6%

Total income for the year

= (10080 x 6)/ 112

= Rs 540

Number of shares = 10080/112

= 90

Selling price of 90 shares at the rate of Rs 96 each = 90 x 96

= Rs 8640

Rate of dividend in new shares = 10%

Face value of each share = Rs 10

Market value of each share = Rs 8

Number of shares = 8640/8 = 1080

Face value of 1080 shares = 1080 x 10

= Rs 10800

Dividend = (10800 x 10)/100

= Rs 1080

Difference in income = 1080 â€“ 540

= Rs 540 more

**25. A man bought 360 ten-rupee shares paying 12% per annum. He sold them when the price rose to Rs. 21 and invested the proceeds in five-rupee shares payingÂ 4 Â½ % per annum at Rs. 3.5 per share. Find the annual change in his income.**

**Solution:**

Given No. of shares bought = 360

Face value of each share = Rs. 10

Rate of dividend = 12%

Total face value of 360 shares

= Rs. 10

x 360

= Rs. 3600

Yearly dividend = (3600 x 12)/100

= Rs 432

On selling the share at Rs 21, the amount received = 21 x 360

= Rs 7560

Face value of new shares = Rs 5

Market value = Rs 3.5

Rate of dividend = 4 Â½ % = 9/2 %

Number of shares purchased = 7560/3.5

= (7560 x 10)/35

= 2160

Face value of 2160 shares = 5 x 2160

= Rs 10800

Dividend = (10800

x 9)/ (100 x 2)

= Rs 486

Change in income = 486 â€“ 432

= Rs 54 gain.

**26. A person invests Rs. 4368 and buys certain hundred-rupee shares at 91. He sells out shares worth Rs. 2400 when they have t risen to 95 and the remainder when they have fallen to 85. Find the gain or loss on the total transaction.**

**Solution:**

Given Investment = Rs. 4368

Market value of each share = Rs. 91

Face valueÂ of each share = Rs 100

Therefore, number of shares = 4368/91

= 48

Face value of 24 shares = 24 x 100

= Rs 2400

Sale price of shares worth Rs 2400 = (2400 x 95)/ 100

= Rs 2280

Face value of remaining shares = 24 x 100

= Rs 2400

Sale price of shares of remaining amount = (2400 x 85)/ 100

= Rs 2040

Total amount received = 2280 + 2040

= Rs 4320

Loss = 4368 â€“ 4320

= Rs 48

**27. By purchasing Rs. 50 gas shares for Rs. 80 each, a man gets 4% profit on his investment. What rate percent is company paying ? What is his dividend if he buys 200 shares ?**

**Solution:**

Given market value of each share = Rs 80

Face value of each share = Rs. 50

Interest on investment = 4%

Dividend on Rs 80 = (80 x 4)/ 100

= 32/10

Percent dividend = (32/10) x (100/50)

= 64/10

= 6.4%

Number of shares = 200

Face value of 200 shares = 200 x 50

= Rs 10000

Dividend = Rs 10000 x (6.4/100)

= Rs 640

**28. Rs. 100 shares of a company are sold at a discount of Rs. 20. If the return on the investment is 15%. Find the rate of dividend declared.**

**Solution:**

Market value of each shares = 100 â€“ 20Â = Rs.80

Interest on investment of Rs. 80 = 15% x 80

=Â 15/100

x 80

= Rs 12

Dividend on face value of Rs. 100 = Rs. 12

Rate of dividend = 12%.

**29. A company declared a dividend of 14%. Find tire market value of Rs. 50 shares if the return on the investment was 10%.**

**Solution:**

Rate of dividend = 14%

Dividend on Rs. 50 =Â (14 x 50)/ 100

= Rs 7

Now Rs. 10 is interest on the investment ofÂ = Rs. 100

Rs. 7 will be the interest onÂ =Â (100 x 7)/ 10Â = Rs. 70

Hence Market value of Rs. 50 shares = Rs. 70

**30. At what price should a 6.25% Rs. 100 shares be quoted when the money is worth 5%?**

**Solution:**

Interest on Rs. 100 worth = Rs. 5

If interest is Rs. 5, then market value = Rs. 100

and if interest is Rs. 6.25, then market value

= (100/5) x 6.25

= (100 x 625)/ (5 x 100)

= 125

Market value of each share = Rs. 125

Chapter test

**1. If a man received â‚¹1080 as dividend from 9% â‚¹20 shares, find the number of shares purchased by him.**

**Solution:**

Income on one share =Â 9/100Â x 20

= RsÂ 9/5

Therefore, no. of shares = 1080 xÂ 5/9

= 120 x 5

= 600

**2. Find the percentage interest on capital invested in 18% shares when a Rs 10 share costs Rs 12.**

**Solution:**

Dividend on one share = 18% of Rs 10

= (18 x 10)/100

= Rs 9/5

Income on Rs 12 = 9/5

Then income of Rs 100 = (9/5) x (100/12)

= 15

Percentage interest on capital = 15%

**3. Rohit Kulkami invests Rs 10000 in 10% Rs 100 shares of a company. If his annual dividend is Rs 800, find :**

**(i) The market value of each share.**

**(ii) The rate percent which he earns on his investment.**

**Solution:**

Given investment = Rs 10000

Face value of each share = Rs 100

Rate of dividend = 10%

Annual dividend = Rs 800

(i) Market value = (10000 x 10)/ 800

= Rs 125

(ii) rate percent on investment = (800 x 100)/ 10000

= 8%

**4. At what price should a 9% Rs 100 share be quoted when the money is worth 6% ?**

**Solution:**

If interest is 6 then investment = Rs 100

and if interest is 9, then investment

= RsÂ (100 x 9)/ 6

= Rs 150

Market value of each share = Rs 150

**5. By selling at Rs 92, some 2.5% Rs 100 shares and investing the proceeds in 5% Rs 100 shares at Rs 115, a person increased his annual income by Rs 90. Find:**

**(i) the number of shares sold.**

**(ii) the number of shares purchased.**

**(iii) the new income.**

**(iv) the rate percent which he earns on his investment.**

**Solution:**

Given rate of dividend = 2.5%

And market price = Rs 92

Let number of shares purchased = x

Selling price of x shares = 92 x

Income from investing

Rs x = (92x x 2.5)/ 92

= (92x x 25)/ (92 x 10) = (5/2) x

Again by investing 92x in 5% at Rs 115 the dividend = (92x x 5)/ 115 = 4x

Difference = 4x â€“ (5/2) x = 3/2 x

3/2 x = 90

x = (90 x 2)/ 3

= 60

(i) therefore, number of shares = 60

(ii) Number of shares sold = 92x/115

= (92 x 60)/ 115

= 48

(iii) New income = 4x = 4 x 60

= Rs 240

(iv) Rate percent interest on investment = (5 x 100)/ 115

= 100/ 23

= 4 (8/23)%
