INSTRUCTOR HINTS

Hint for Question 1: The earnings per share are $5.35. Check the case for how many shares

are outstanding. Multiply the earnings per share by the total shares outstanding for the total

earnings.

Hint for Question 2: The case provides the dividend payout amount. The dividend payout

amount divided by the total earnings is the payout ratio.

Hint for Question 3: The opposite of the payout ratio is the retention ratio. The two ratios

together would = 100%.

That should help you get the first three questions.
