d.$9,250 loss
the answer is B.600 gain but why? i cant figure out how that answer came about, please help me!

financi4 answers:

500 shares for 21,750 = 43.50 per share. A hundred shares then cost $4350. Sell 100 hundred shares at 49.50 per share and you get $4950. Subtract $4350 from $4950, and you make a gain of $600 dollars
