# How much interest earned per year?

John buys 500 shares of mkbel (make believe) stock. It sells for $7.62 a share. The dividend yield per share is .72 cents annually. How much interest will he earn per year? Thank you.

You mean, how much dividend he earns, not how much interest. Interest & dividends are different things.

He bought 500/7.62 shares. Nope! He bought 500 shares. I need to learn how to read.

Then, for each share, he gets 0.72$. So, multiply the 500 by 0.72. The answer will be how much money, dividends, you made/received.

So, what is your final answer?
