Question #6212
5. An analyst wants to use the Black-Scholes model to value call options on the stock of Ledbetter Inc. based on the following data: The price of the stock is $40.

Given this information, the analyst then calculated the following necessary components of the Black-Scholes model: d1 = 0.175 d2 = -0.025 N(d1) = 0.56946 N(d2) = 0.49003

N(d1) and N(d2) represent areas under a standard normal distribution function. Using the Black-Scholes model, what is the value of the call option?
a. $2.81
b. $3.12
c. $3.47
