Find the money multiplier for the following reserve requirements: a. 15% m = 6.667 b. 20% m = 5 c. 25% m = 4 d. 30% m = 3.333 e. 50% m = 2 2. Calculate the total amount of money that is created when there is a new initial deposit of $10,000 for each of the reserve requirements: a. 15% the total amount of money created = $8500 b. 20% the total amount of money created = $8000 c. 25% the total amount of money created = $7500 d. 30% the total amount of money created = $7000 e. 50% the total amount of money created = $5000 3.
