(a)

To compute:

The amount of money the bank could lend if a bank had a reserve of $30,000 and demand deposits of$200,000.

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The bank had reservesof $30,000 and demand deposits of$200,000. The bank reserve ratio is 10%.

Calculation of required reserve:

Requiredreserve=r×D=0.1×$200,000=$20,000

Calculation of excess reserve:

Excessreserve=ActualreserveRequiredreserve=$30,000$20,000=$10,000 The assets and liability of the bank should be equal. Therefore, Demanddepoists+Excessreserve=Reserve+Loans$200,000+$10,000=$30,000+LoansLoans=$210,000$30,000=$180,000 Similarly, The bank had reservesof$30,000 and demand deposits of $200,000. The bank reserve ratio is 15%. Calculation of required reserve: Requiredreserve=r×D=0.15×$200,000=$30,000 Calculation of excess reserve: Excessreserve=ActualreserveRequiredreserve=$30,000$30,000=$0

The assets and liability of the bank should be equal

To determine

(b)
