A corporation with 5,000,000 shares of publicly traded stock reported total earnings of $7.20 per share for the first 9 months of operation. If during the final quarter, the number of publicly listed shares was increased to 10,000,000, and fourth quarter earnings were reported at $1.25 per share, what are the average annual earnings per share based on the number of shares at the end of the year?

A. 1.75
B. 2.40
C. 3.15
D. 3.60
E. 4.85


Dear Bunuel

The question ask about average. However, you categorize this problem as combination and probability. I think it should be under 'Arithmetic' or 'stats and set problems'.

What do you think?

I think question stem should read "annual earnings per share".

Writing average annual confuses reader. It implies two meanings average over month and average over per share

Dear Bunuel,

The question tag is written as combinatorics and probability.
