Weighted average common shares outstanding, basic, diluted EPS

I am having problems with calculating the weighted average common shares outstanding.

I'm also having trouble with what to do with the cumulative convertible stock and the stock options. I know that there should be a formula for this but I can't find it anywhere.

A) $42,392.
B) $41,409.
C) $41,368.
D) $40,000.
