Dividend payout ratio = dividend / EPS = 0.7/1.2=0.5833

 Growth rate=ROE*(1-payout ratio) growth rate=9.25*(1-0.5833) growth rate = 3.85
 EAR = [(1 +stated rate/no. of compounding periods) ^no. of compounding periods - 1]* 100 Effective Annual Rate = ((1+12/4*100)^4-1)*100 Effective Annual Rate% = 12.55 Future value = present value*(1+ rate)^time Future value = 3000*(1+0.12550881)^20 Future value = 31923
