I figured out Income from Continuing Operations and Net Income by using this formula: (Net Income - Preferred Dividends)/ # of common shares outstanding. This formula gave me the correct answer for Net Income and Income from Continuing Operations but when I plug in Discontinued operations, I get the wrong answer. The EPS is 0.67. Discontinued Operations is listed as Loss from Disposal: 250,000 (net of tax \$62,500), Loss from Operations: 150,000(net of tax \$37,500) for a total of 400,000. Preferred dividend = 50,000 Common dividend = 200,000 Total outstanding common shares for year = 600,000 Any help is appreciated!
