Question:

 In Westlandia, the public holds 50% of M1 in the form of currency, and the required reserve ratio is 20%.

1. Estimate how much the money supply will increase in response to a new cash deposit of $500 by completing the accompanying table.

(Hint: The first row shows that the bank must hold $100 in minimum reserves—20% of the $500 deposit—against this deposit, leaving $400 in excess reserves that can be loaned out.  However, since the public wants to hold 50% of the loan in currency, only $400 × 0.5 = $200 of the loan will be deposited in round 2 from the loan granted in round 1.)
