1. Step 1: Determine amount of dividends that preferred shareholders are entitled to:
5000*100*5% = 25,000
Step 2: Determine amount of earnings left over for common shareholders after the payment of preferred dividends:
105,000-25,000 = 80,000.
Step 3: Use the EPS formula to determine EPS:
EPS = Earnings available for common shareholders/common shares outstanding
80,000/20,000 = \$4.00

Note: Another way of writing the EPS formula is as follows:
(Net income - preferred dividends)/average outstanding shares.
