Common stock = 6900 X .8 = 5520. Because there are 6900 shares issued at $.8 each. Still trying to remember how you get PIC.

Edit: So the PIC is how much extra money they made in excess of par value. Say that a stock has a stated value of $1 per share, but it actually sold for $3/share. So PIC is how much extra money they got, in this case it's an extra $2 per share.

So the stock in the problem is stated at $.8/share, but sold at $11.3/share.
11.3 - .8 = 10.5 x 6900 = 72450.
