Explanation of Solution

Cash dividends: The amount of cash provided by a corporation out of its distributable profits to its shareholders as a return for the amount invested by them is referred as cash dividends.

Common stock: These are the ordinary shares that a corporation issues to the investors in order to raise funds. In return, the investors receive a share of profit from the profits earned by the corporation. The dividend payments are not guaranteed and are paid after the payment made to the preferred stockholders.

Preferred stock: The stock that provides a fixed amount of return (dividend) to its stockholder before paying dividends to common stockholders is referred as preferred stock.

A preferred stock may be cumulative and non-cumulative. A cumulative preferred stock implies that a preferred stockholder is entitled to receive dividends for the current year plus any unpaid dividends of the previous years, before the dividends paid to the common stockholders.

Dividend per share: Dividend per share represents the amount of dividend paid to each shareholders of the business.

Determine the total dividends and the amount of dividends declared per share for preferred and common stock for each of the six years.
