(a) Determine the weighted average number of shares outstanding as of December 31, 2011.
(b) Assume that Vermont Maple Corp. earned net income of $8,352,000 during 2011. In addition, it had 200,000 shares of 9%, $100 par value nonconvertible, cumulative preferred stock outstanding for the entire year.

earnings per share for 2011.
