Total share =  28,000 , Market value of equity = 624,960 Per share price = 624,960 / 28,000 = 22.32

Part A ) Plan is to use \$ 42000 to purcchase the share so equity will reduce by this amount

Part B ) No of shares that can be purchsed = Amount / Share price = 42,000 / 22.32 = 1881.72 = 1882

Part C ) New share otstanding = Old share outstanding - repurchase share = 28000 -1882 = 26118

Part D ) Share price = new equity value / new shares outstanding = (624,960? -42000 )/ 26118 = 22.32
