Hi, can someone explain the solution in detail... Don't we need to know the relation between price per share and earnings per share to determine the ratio?

Initial situation:

Price per Share: x
Earning Per Share: Y

After the increase:

Price per Share: x + (kx/100) = (100x+kx)/100 (i)
earning per share: y + (my/100) = (100y+my)/100 (ii)

ratio of the initial situation: x/y
ratio after the increase: (i) / (ii) which gives us after simplification

x/y (100+k)/(100+m) (iii)


The solution will be { (iii) - x/y } / x/y *100/100

After simplification we have D like an answer.


Beautifull one....
