The required reserve ratio is 10 percent, a bank has checkable deposits of \$200 million and excess reserves of \$100 million. Assuming the bank is meeting its reserve requirement, what amount is the bank holding in reserves?

The required reserve ratio is 10%, that means out of the total deposit, the bank will keep 10% as reserve with them and rest will be lent out. So, the checkable deposit is \$200 mIllion, thus, the bank will keep 10% of the \$200 million with them as required reserve. 10% of \$200 million is \$20 million. And thus, the bank is holding \$20 million in reserve. And the rest (\$180 million) is the excess reserve.

Hope, I solved your query. Give good feedback.
