March 31 Market Value $12,380,000.00
April 6 Dividend Payment4,340.00
April 12 Coupon Payment60,000.00
April 15 Pension Contribution92,000.00
April 21 Disbursement to Pension Pay system-80,000.00
April 30 Market Value$12,400,000.00

The equation is thus
R = 12,400,000 - 15(92,000) - 21(-80,000) = 12,410,000 = 1.000645057 = 1 + 0.0645%
3030


12,380,000 + 15(92,000) +  9  (-80,000) 12,402,000
3030
