Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

e. None of these.

Explanation:

Step 1. Given information.

Taxable Dividend Yield = 9.7%

Tax rate on Dividend yield=15%

Interest rate=10%

Let Tax rate on Interest=X

Step 2. Formulas needed to solve the exercise.

Interest rate * (1 - x) = taxable dividend yield ( 1 - tax rate on dividend yield)

Step 3. Calculation.

0.10*(1-x)=0.097*(1-0.15)

0.10-0.10x=0.08245

0.10x=0.01755

x=0.01755/0.10

=0.1755

=17.55%

Step 4. Solution.

e. None of these.
