Book value per share is a technique for calculating the per-share value of a company. It is used by investors to estimate whether the company's stock price is undervalued or overvalued by analyzing it with the market value per share.

The correct option is: 3.05 Explanation: {eq}\begin{align*} {\rm{Book}}\;{\rm{value}}\;{\rm{per}}\,{\rm{share}} &= \dfrac{{{\rm{Total}}\;{\rm{common}}\,{\rm{stockholders'}}\;{\rm{equity - Preferred}}\;{\rm{stock}}}}{{{\rm{Number}}\;{\rm{of}}\;{\rm{common}}\;{\rm{shares}}}}\\ & = \dfrac{{710 - 100}}{{400 \div 2}}\\ &= \dfrac{{610}}{{200}}\\ &= \ 3.05 \end{align*} {/eq}
