A small state bank currently has reserves equal to $300,000. If the state reserve requirement is 20%, but the bank currently maintains a 30% reserve, how much are the excess reserves the bank currently a. $200,000 b. $100,000 c. $300,000 d. $500,000 e. None of the above.
30%=$300000 what about the certified 20% (20*300000)/30=200000 therefore the excess in reserves amounts to 300000-200000=100000 ans b.
Withdrawn you're money from that bank and open a new account somewhere else. If they only have $300,000 in reserves they are about go out of business.
