            = 7,211 + 10,000 = Sh.17,211

b) H  =  3Z - 2L

        =  3 x 17,211 - 2(10,000)

        = Shs.31,633

c) Average cash balance = 4Z - L / 3

                                       = (4 * 17,211 - 10,000) / 3

d) The spread  =  H - L

                        =   31,633 - 10,000

                        =   Shs.21,633

Note: whether the cash balance increases to 31,633, the firm must invest of Shs.14,422 or 31,633 - 17,211 such in marketable securities and whether the balance decreases to of Shs.10,000, the firm must sell of Shs.7,211or 17,211 - 10,000 such of marketable securities.
