Answer is 19.96%.
after-tax cost of internal common or retained earnings = [dividend paid*(1+dividend growth rate)/current share price] + dividend growth rate

after-tax cost of internal common or retained earnings = [$3.82*(1+0.13)/$62] + 0.13 = [($3.82*1.13)/$62] + 0.13 = ($4.3166/$62) + 0.13 = 0.0696 + 0.13 = 0.1996 or 19.96%
after-tax cost of internal common or retained earnings is 19.96%.
