Given: amount invested by the man = \[Rs.{\text{ }}45000\]

Cost of each quoted shares =\[Rs.{\text{ }}125\]

$\therefore $so, number of shares purchased is given by $ = \dfrac{{45000}}{{125}} = 360$

Now when the market value of the shares rose,

Cost of each share after rise of share price = \[Rs.{\text{ }}140\]

Amount he wants to get = \[Rs.{\text{ }}8400\]

So, number of shares sold is given by $ = \dfrac{{8400}}{{140}} = 60$

$\therefore $number of share he still hold = (number of shares purchased) – (number of shares sold)

$ = 360 - 60 = 300$

Basic formula used here is – Number of shares = Total amount of money/Cost price of each share.

Do the calculations carefully to avoid any silly mistake even after knowing the procedure to do the problem. Don’t get confused because of Rs .100 in the question because that is the cost price before that man invested so it doesn’t have any role in getting the answer for what you are asked for.
