Their answer is correct assuming 31,325 is their answer and your answer is 30,525. The explanation is also correct and the working is correct. What did you think was wrong? How did you get to your answer?

Just a thought, did you misread the proceeds as £81,000 rather than £81,800?

Thanks coojee

Here is my workings

1200 shares at £48,000 (Matched to shares purchased in 30 days after 12th March)

450 shares at £2475

This is made up from the pool

5600 -£11,200
800 -£24,000

6400 - £35,200

£35,200 / 6400 * 450 = £2475

£81,000 - £48,000 - £2475 = gain £30525

appreciate your help everyone seems to have legged it from here
