Homework Answers

Answer #1

#) Adjust the stock split into the shares outstanding before stock split. (Stock split is 2 for 1, so shares outstanding before stock split should multiply by 2 for adjustment)

January 1, 2021 = 350000 * 2 = 700000 Shares

April 1              = (40000 * 2) = (80000) shares

September 1               = 20000 *2 = 40000 shares
