Let the investment amount be Rs 100, and yeild be 8% and interest be 6%. Therefore, formula is: asummed amt Ã· yeild amt * interest amt : 100/0.8 * 0.6 = 75.

The dividend yield or dividend-price ratio of a share is the dividend per share, divided by the price per share;

Dividend yield = Dividend per share / Price per share.

8 = 6 / Price per share.

Price per share = 6/8 = 0.75.

If Face value of share Rs. 100 then market value of share = Rs. 75.

Dividend yield = Dividend per share / Price per share.

8 = 6 / Price per share.

Price per share = 6/8 = 0.75.

If Face value of share Rs. 100 then market value of share = Rs. 75.

The stock he bought which was 6% of face value now worth 8% of the market value.

Let x be the market value,

we don't know face value so consider 100.

6% of 100 = 8% of x.

(6/100)*100 =(8/100)*x.

6=8x/100.

x=600/8.

x=75.

133.33 is the correct answer because market value should higher than the actual value, therefore, we should take for 6% we take Rs 100 as income finally it results in market value as 133.33.

Given, income Rs.6 on investment of 100 and interest is 8%, find out the market value.

As we know that interest is on market value so,6 = (market value * 8 * 1)/100.

So, the Market value = 75.

As we know that interest is on market value so,6 = (market value * 8 * 1)/100.

So, the Market value = 75.

Why are we assuming FV = 100, in all these questions? Can somebody explain me the logic behind it?

Because if we are saying 6% stock it means, we will get Rs 6 as a dividend only when FV is 100.

6% at ---- . ---- here is the market value .. go through the important formulas once.

6% at a particular market value yields 8%.(market value we should find)

we assume face value as 100 so 8rs income we get from 100 investment, so for 6rs income how much investment 6*100/8= 75rs this investment is the market value.
