### Question 3

Mrs. K invests a part of Rs. 50400 in 6% stock at Rs. 140, and the remainder in 2% stock at Rs. 120. If her dividend per annum is Rs. 1720, how much did she invest in 2% stock?

**A**

Rs. 16800.

**B**

Rs. 16900.

**C**

Rs. 16700.

**D**

Rs. 17000.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

If she invests x in 2% stock at Rs. 120, then her income from this investment is Rs. $(x × 2)/120$. Her income from the 6% stock at Rs. 140 would be ${(50400- x) × 6}/140$. The sum is Rs. 1720. So $(x × 2)/120$ + ${(50400- x) × 6}/140$ = 1720. Solving for x we get x = Rs. 16800. Please note that if the calculation seems tough in the exam, you can try direct substitution of options one by one.
