#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

1.Par value per share = Total Book value/Number of shares

Corporation's preferred stock= 50,000/1,000 = \$50

Corporation's common stock= 100,000/4,000 = \$25

Book Value per share = (Common Stock+ Retained Earnings)/Number of shares outstanding

= (100,000+370,000)/4,000

= \$117.5

3.Total Dividend outstanding = 50,000*5%*2 = \$5,000

Book Value per Share = (470,000 – 5000)/4,000

= \$116.25

4.Prior year dividend on cumulative preferred stock is paid before any dividend is paid to common shareholders

Total amount paid to preferred shareholders = 50,000*5%*3 = \$7,500

Common Shareholders = 20,000-7,500 = \$12,500
