please let me know if I'm right

common stock $600
additional paid-in capital $250
retained earnings $370
net income for year $240
I need return on common stockholder's equity=net income/stock equity=240/600=0.4

    Do you mean return on common sh equity rate?

    (Net income – Preferred dividends)
    ÷ Average common stockholders’ equity

    That is the formula. Since you do not have any preferred dividends then you can leave it out.
