a. Transaction deposits + Reserves = (250+20+45-190-35) = 90
Reserve requirement = 10% = 9

Excess reserves = 20-9 = \$11

b. Loan = \$11
Both assets and liabilities rise by \$11. The bank gives the customer a checking account with \$11 in it, a new deposit liability of the bank.

Reserves: \$20
Loans: \$261
Securities: \$45

Transaction deposits: 101
Nontransaction deposits:\$190
Equity capital:\$35

c. Reserves: \$9
Loans: \$261
Securities: \$45

Transaction deposits: \$90
Nontransaction deposits: \$190
