Amount invested in 3% stock is Rs. 5625

& Amount invested in 6% stock is Rs. 15,000 – 5625 = Rs. 9375.

Brokerage for buying is 1.5%

Cost of 1 Share is 88.50 + 1.50 = 90 for 100 —— 90

Again he purchased stock for 94.50

Cost of one share = 94.50 + 0.25 = 94.75

For 100 ____ 94.75

∴ Kiran buys the stock worth \(=\frac{726 \times 100}{94.75}=766.22\)

Question 21.

A person invested 42,000 partly in 5% stock at 125 and the remaining in 7.5% stock at 75. If income derived from the two stocks is the same. Find the respective investments in each stock also find the total income.

Answer:

Let Rs. x be invested in 5% stock

and (42,000 -x) be invested in 7.5% stock

Income obtained from 5% stock at \(125=\frac{5 x}{125}\)

Income obtained from 7.5 stock at \(75=\frac{7.5}{75}(42,000-x) \)

Given both Incomes are equals

0.04 x + 0.1 x = 4200

0.14 x = 4200

x = 30,000

∴ Rs. 30,000 in 5% stock and 12,000 in 7.5% stock

Total income 1200 + 1200 = 2400.

Question 22.

Arun invests Rs. 15,000 partly in 3% stock at 75 and partly in 6% stock at 125. If the total interest income from both is Rs. 675. Find his investment in the two types of stock.

Answer:

Let x be the investment in 1 st stock

and 15,000 -x be the investment in 2nd stock

Income in 1st stock = \(\frac{3}{75} \times x\)

Income in 2nd stock = \(\frac{6}{125} \times(15,000-x)\)

Given sum of both incomes = 675

∴ Amount invested in 1st stock = 5625

and Amount invested 2nd stock = 15,000 – 5625 = Rs. 9375.

Question 23.

An investor sold Rs. 500 stock at Rs. 89.50 and buys stock at Rs. 92.50 with the proceeds. How much stock he buys the brokerage being 0.125%.
