a. The average rate of return for each stock is calculated simply by averaging the returns over

the 5-year period. The average return for each stock is 18.90 percent, calculated for Stock

A as follows:

kAvg

( 10.00%

18.50%

38.67%

14.33%

33.00%)/5

18.90%.

The realized rate of return on a portfolio made up of Stock A and Stock B would be calculated by ﬁnding the average return in each year as kA(% of Stock A) kB(% of Stock B) and

then averaging these annual returns:
