200 is the answer

15$ paid for 12 stocks, so per stock it pays 5/4$
so to get a dividend of 160$ , he should have 200 shares

Set d = dividend paid / share
Set X = # of shares

X*d = $160
(X+12)*d = $175
X*d + 12*d = $175
$160 + 12*d = $175
12*d = $15
d= $15/12

X * $15/12 = $160
X = $160 * 12/$15
X = $160 * 4/$5
X = 32 * 4
X = 128

A


thats rigtht silly me......per share is 5/4 , then for 200 shares it would be 250 .....you are right
