I bought this answer in student of fortune website!
A:

Assuming the commission charged on both buying and selling

Commission = 2%

Number os shares = 200

Rate of selling = \$31.76

Amount for buying = 22.35*200 = 4470

After commission amount needed to buy 200 shares = 4470 + 2% of 4470 = \$4559.4

Total amount for selling 200 shares = 200*31.76 = 6352

Amount received after commision = 6352 - 2% of 6352 = 6224.96

Amount earned by Jeff in this transcations = 6224.96-4559.4 = \$1665.56
