You will have to pay $62 to cover the stock that you only received $36 for so your loss is $26 per share.

Jared sold the stock for a price of 225 + A. Profit is the difference between the cost (buying the stock) and the revenue (selling the stock). So, if you add A to the cost of 225, you'll get the selling price.
