I have watched the videos with a similar problem, and my answers are wrong. I only have one more attempt to get his right. What am I doing wrong. In the video it states to divide the January 3 options of 21,200 by the purchase shares of 31800 to get the percentage rate to be deducted from the compenstation cost of $477,000. I get 67%. Right or wrong?
