Ans:

Calculation of Weighted average number of shares outstanding:

Treasury stock : 50,000

Stock Split : 2 for 1

Issued stock will be : 150,000 * 2 = 300,000

Treasury stock increase to : 50,000 * 2 = 100,000

Stock repurcahse on Nov 1 : 24,000

Preferred converted on Dec 1 : 12,000

Outstanding average common stock :

 Period Stock Outstanding Working Avaerage outstanding stock Jan 1 - Nov 1 300,000 - 100,000 200,000*10/12 166,666.67 Nov 1 - Dec 1 200,000 - 24,000 176,000 * 1/12 14,666.67 Dec 1 - Dec 31 176,000 + 12,000 188,000 * 1/12 15,666.67 Weighted Average Total 197,000
