*4:3 Split after close of 1/2/19

**8:5 Split after close of 1/2/19

**1. Calculation
of percentage change in a price weighted index consisting of these
three stocks from 2019-2020**

Price of Index Before Price Change is 50+30+43.8462 = 123.8462

Price of Index After Change is 50+70+114 = 234

% Change is ( 234 - 123.8462 ) / 123.8462 = 88.9440 %

**W.N.
1**

**X = 50** (before and after same)

**Y = 70**

Split Ratio is 4:3 that means (133.3333%)

Price before Split is (70/7)*3 = 30

**Z = 114**

Split Ratio is 8:5 that means (160%)

Price before Split is (114/13)*5 = 43.8462
