If the bank holds \$1million in excess reserves and the required reserves ratio is 8 percent, what level of deposits arebeing held?(\$6,000,000/.08)+ 1,000,000=\$75,000,000+\$1,000,000= \$76,000,000P1- Assume that Bank A receives a primary deposit of \$100,000 and that it must keep reservesof 10 percent against deposits.
