Question 35.

Sir

I am not getting any cue for assuming NV for both share 100. Please help me to understand as I see you have calculated dividend assuming NV 100

6% of NV * No. of shares

= 6% of 100 * x /140

= 6 * x/140

=3x/70

Obviously you have taken NV =100 but why?

Please help me to understand

Thank you
