# Calculating total percentage return on stock

If I had a stock and it has an initial price of $83.00 per share, paid a dividend of 1.40 per share during the year and had an ending share price of 91.00. What is the percentage total return?

As an extension, what was the dividend yield and the capital gains yield?

Lastly, please help rework problems 1 and 2 assuming the ending share price is $76.00

Thank you!
