    On average the firm issued shares at $15 dollars each

    Explanation:

    the treasury stock are purchased at the market price which is not the same as the issuance price thus, we ignore it.

    the company issued 33,600 shares with par value of $10

    from which it has $168,000 additional paid-in

    In total: 33,600 x $10 = 336,000

    + 168,000

    Total paid-in 504,000

    504,000 / 33,600 = $15
