Explanation of Solution

Return on Stockholder’s Equity:

Return on stockholder’s equity is a metric that compares one measure of return with other measure of returns. It is calculated by dividing the remainder of net income and preference dividend by the average common stockholder’s equity.

Use the following formula to calculate the value of average common stockholder’s equity:

Average Common Stockholder's Equity=[(Stockholder's Equity for 20X11+Stockholder's Equity for 20X22)2]

Substitute $4,949,965 for stockholder’s equity for 20X1 and $4,316,655 for stockholder’s equity for 20X2 in the above formula.

Average Common Stockholder's Equity=$4,949,965+$4,316,6552=$4,633,310

Therefore, the value of average common stockholder’s equity is $4,633,310

2.

To determine

Compute the value of return on stockholder’s equity.
