# Money Multiplier and Reserve Ratio

$27,000 is deposited into Bank C and the Reserve ratio is 23%

This is what I have: $27,000 x 0.23 = 6210.00

Here is where my problem is do I multiply the 6210.00 by 23% to calculate the deposit expansion multiplier for this Bank?

Will it be like: 6210.00 x 0.23 = 1428.30 ?

And the final step is to calculate the total amount of new money that will eventually be created by all bands due to the $27,000 initial deposit.

Like 1428.30 x 0.23 = 328.5.
