A man invested Rs 45,000 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 the :
(i) Number of shares he still holds ;
(ii) Dividend due to him on these remaining shares.
Each subpart: 1.5 Marks
(i) No. of shares he had =45000125=360
No. of shares he sold =8400140=60
∴ No. of shares he still holds = 360 - 60
