**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 7:50pm1800 * $3 = $5400 -- amount he paid

1800 * $4.6 = $8200 -- amount he sold it for

1800 * $0.8 = $1440 -- dividends

Adding the sale price to the dividends -- $8200 + 1440 = $9640

Next -- subtract the amount he paid from the amount he made -- $9640 - $5400 = $4240

4240/5400 = 0.785 = 78.5% = his return on his investment
