Flaming Lip Corporation has 25,000 shares outstanding of 12% $15 par value, cumulative preferred stock.  In 2009 and 2010, no dividends were declared on preferred stock.  In 2011, Flaming Lip had a profitable year and decided to pay dividends to stockholders of both preferred and common stock.

If Flaming Lip has $200,000 available for dividends in 2011, how much could it pay to the preferred and common stockholders?
