 Prajyot said: (Jul 11, 2013) Let x be MV and fv be 100(say). 9000------>756. 100------->10.5*(100/(x+.25)). Just solve them. You'll get x = 124.75.

 Habte said: (Feb 3, 2014) How we get 100?

 Jayant said: (Sep 9, 2014) For @Habte. Simplifying @Prajyots answer. Let 9000.......756 ???........10.5 That gives 125. Now subtracting brokerage 0.25(1/4) we get 124.75.

 Ramya.T said: (Mar 29, 2015) How its 21\2?

 Sukumar Satyen said: (Apr 27, 2015) Answer should be like this : - Market Value of stock is to be found out, therefore, following are given: - Face Value = Rs. 9000. Dividend = 10.5%. Annual Income = Rs. 756. Brokerage per Rs. 100 = Rs. 0.25. Dividend is always paid on the face value of a share. By Formula, Face Value * Dividend / (Market Value + Brokerage per Rs. 100) = Annual income. => 9000 * 10.5 / 756 = Market Value of Rs. 100 stock + Brokerage per Rs. 100. => Market Value of Rs. 100 stock + Brokerage per Rs. 100 = Rs. 125. => Market Value of Rs. 100 stock = Rs. 125 - Re. 0.25. => Market Value of Rs. 100 stock = Rs. 124.75. Thanks.

 Vishwaraj said: (Aug 11, 2015) In all other questions % stock is the profit per share i.e. 5% stock at 25 means 5 Rs. Profit on one share of Rs. 25. So here 10.5 % should be the profit per share not the % profit per share.
