Neha said: (Feb 12, 2011) | |

Why we have reciprocated it? |

Nirmala said: (Jul 24, 2011) | |

Why do the 3/50? |

Shiva said: (Aug 14, 2011) | |

50/3---64 1500-------? 1500 1500*3*64 ans=------*64= --------- 50/2 50 |

Swati said: (Sep 21, 2011) | |

Say 50/3 stock is sold den earned amount is 64 Swhen 1500 is earned invested amount is= ? 50/3--- 64 1-------64*3/50 Therefore 1500-------- 64*3/50*1500 |

Akshu said: (Nov 5, 2011) | |

Clearly explain why 50/3 is written as 3/50. |

Manikandan said: (Nov 11, 2011) | |

Ankit Garg said: (Dec 27, 2011) | |

Suppose 1oo people complete the task =300days then 1 people can complete this task=300/100 same as 50/3--- 64 1-------(64/(50/3)) |

Pawan Kumar said: (Jan 18, 2012) | |

@Ankit please clear your basic and dont misguide others 100 people complete the task =300days then 1 people can complete this task=300/100 Do these statements make sense. |

Haja said: (Jan 21, 2012) | |

@pawan, @manikandan 1 x 50/3 = 64 Then 1 = 64 x 3/50 |

Rupali D said: (Oct 13, 2012) | |

@pawan Suppose u do a work in 2 days... then what amount u work in 1 day?????? obviously half work.....isnt it????? then how it comes 1/2 work???????? in this way....... 2 days.....1 work 1 day.......X work... i.e 2*X = 1*1 i.e X =(1*1)/2 i.e X = 1/2 work.........this is the answer... |

See, 50/3 he is earning when he is investing Rs. 64. So for earning of Rs.1 he has to invest Rs. 64/(50/3). So for earning of Rs.1500 he has to invest Rs. 64/(50/3)*1500. =64*(3/50)*1500 =64*3*1500/50 =Rs. 5760. |

Bubai said: (Jul 24, 2013) | |

Nilofar said: (Sep 8, 2013) | |

To earn 50/3 v invest 64. So to earn 1500 v invest ? Just do cross multiply i.e., V invest 64*1500*3/50 = Rs. 5760. |

Lucky said: (Jan 24, 2014) | |

Here if you invest 64 Rs then you'll get 16 2/3%. 16 2/3% = 50/3 = 16.6Rs. Which means you'll earn 16.6Rs. In the question, one earns 1500 Rs then how much we invested? 64 ---- 16.6 or 50/3. ? ----- 1500. = (1500*64)/(50/3). = 1500*64*3/50. = 5760. |

Supriya said: (Aug 24, 2014) | |

HOW can 16*(2/3)% can be converted to Rupee ? please explain this. |

Ankur said: (Nov 2, 2014) | |

Statements are very confusing! Basics are not clear! Help. |

Raju said: (Jan 27, 2015) | |

Income 1500 means dividend on total face value of stocks. Dividend always earned on total face value of shares as per market value. d = g/mv*fv. 16of2/3% means we gain(g) 50/3 at 100. 1500 = 50/3/64*fv. fv = 1500*3/50*64. fv = 5760. Total fv is investment to price shares. |

Raju@Cat Trainer said: (Jan 27, 2015) | |

16% stock at 64. Means x% dividend on market value. So 16% means 16 rupees for 100th of share. Dividend = Annual profit of shares or x% stock of total face values. Eg: A person purchased 7200, 8% stock at 90. What is the face value, market value, dividend? Sol: A person purchased 7200 worth of stock at 8 % dividend. So 8% dividend means 8 rupees. Face value of shares=total value of shares. Fv = 7200. Total market value = 90% of total face value. 90/100*7200 = 6480. Dividend on all shares 8% on 7200. 8/100*7200 = 576. |

Varun said: (Feb 15, 2015) | |

He earn 50/3-------------Invest 64. For earn 1---------------64/(50/3). 1500 earn---------------1500*64*3/50 = 5760 Ans. |

War said: (Mar 26, 2015) | |

When left fraction goes to right it reciprocate. x/y = something. Then 1 = something*y/x. Just couldn't understand the question? Please explain. |

Anjali said: (Apr 12, 2015) | |

After I made research on this question, there is a mistake I found. i.e., the question is stated with 16% and the answer has solved with 50/3%. Now up to you which one you will think is right. |

Bryan said: (May 29, 2015) | |

What happen to the percentage, I thought it would be 50/300? Please help me. |

Tanusha said: (Aug 22, 2015) | |

= 50/3-64 = 1500-? = 1500*64/50/3 = 1500*64*3/50. = 288000/50 = 5760. |

Aashi said: (Dec 23, 2015) | |

Hi @Anjali, 16*3 = 48+2 = 50 [mixed fraction]. |

Anil said: (Jul 7, 2016) | |

1500 * 64 = 288000|50/3. -> Rs. 5760. |

Karthik Kumar V said: (Jul 27, 2016) | |

I can't understand because there they are giving as 16.66% they why they are taking as Rs. 16.6666. |

Manish Singh said: (Aug 14, 2016) | |

You explained good, @Swati. |

Komal said: (Feb 15, 2017) | |

Explain me, how come 50/3? |

Arger said: (May 25, 2017) | |

Please explain why 50/3 ? If 3 * 16 + 2 = 50, where the over /3 get? Please explain. |

Kiran said: (May 31, 2017) | |

Fraction is to be done in that way. 16 * 2 ÷ 3 = 50÷3. |

Sunil said: (Jun 13, 2017) | |

It tells that earn rs16.66 by investing Rs 64. By earn rs100 we need to invest in 8 shares(16.66 * 8 = 100) so for earn 1500 need to purchase 8*15 = 120shares. 1share = 64rs. So total investment =64 * 120 = 5760. |

Sunil said: (Jun 13, 2017) | |

6 * 16.66 = 100. For 1500 = 6 * 15 = 90shares, 1share Rs 64. Then investment is 90 * 64 = 5760. |

Habibur Rahman said: (May 23, 2018) | |

How could I understand that 50/3 the earning? I can't able to know how it comes 50/3? Please explain. |

Sandesh said: (Jun 24, 2018) | |

3*16+2 = 50/3. 50/3 = 16.66. Rs.64 -- 16.66. Rs. ? -- 1. = 3.84. 1500*3.84 = 5760. |

Madhu said: (Jul 25, 2018) | |

@All. How 50/3 reciprocated? Here is the explanation; When the fraction number is present in denominator while calculating that denominator of the denominator will go to the numerator. |

Sahil said: (Aug 2, 2018) | |

"Earning" here implies dividend on the total face value of the stocks (and NOT on the investment amount). |

Geetendra said: (Sep 9, 2019) | |

50/3 rs at 64 , Then 1500rs at = 64/(50/3) * 1500. => 64 * 3 * 1500/50. =>64 * 90, =>5760. |

Sunand Pal said: (Oct 10, 2019) | |

I believe here ideally the Face Value should have been mentioned, the face value assumed is 100. Total Investment= ((Total Income)/(Face Value * Dividend ) ) * Market Value Please take a note Market Value is Investment per share. |

Shubham Jain said: (Oct 11, 2019) | |

Yes, you are right the face value is assumed to be 100. |
