The discount rate is 4%; the Federal funds rate is 5%; and the required reserve ratio is 15%. What is the maximum amount of funds GNB can loan out?

A.$600 B.$576

C.$570 D.$510

## Loan Out:

Loan out refers tot he amount which the company is able to give it as a loan and earn interest. The company will charge an interest rate through which it will earn money.

The required reserve ratio is 15% which implies that the bank holds 15% of its deposit as a reserve rather than lend out. Therefore the bank must keep $15 out of$100 deposit. Thus Bank's total reserve is equal to

{eq}\frac{15}{100}*{600} {/eq}

=90

Therefore bank must keep $90 and maximum (600-90)=$510 dollar can lend out.

D. \$510
